Pune: Senior lawyer Ujjwal Nikam has withdrawn as special public prosecutor in the 2014 Mohsin Sheikh murder case in which members of the Hindu Rashtra Sena (HRS) are accused. The state government last month cancelled the appointment of Mr Nikam as prosecutor in the case based on his request, according to sources.

A notification by Maharashtra’s law and judiciary department said it had withdrawn its order appointing Mr Nikam as special public prosecutor, on his request, in the case pending before a Pune court.

 

Sheikh, 28, a software engineer, was attacked and killed on June 2, 2014 allegedly by HRS members in Hadapsar area. Mr Nikam, who was the prosecutor in 26/11 Mumbai terror attack case, refused to comment.
