Supreme Court refuses urgent hearing of Hardik Patel’s plea
The Supreme Court has declined an urgent hearing of Patidar leader Hardik Patel's plea seeking a suspension of his conviction in a 2015 Vispur rioting case. He had moved the top court in order to contest the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. The top court, while declining his petition, asked Patel why did he not come earlier. “You allowed the order to attain finality. We can't help you if you don't help yourself,” the Supreme Court said, adding "There is no urgency as he was convicted way back in 2015, says Supreme Court."
