The plea was filed in 2019 by Nagpur-based social worker Mohanish Jeevanlal Jabalpure, through advocate Satish Uke. The Court had already issued notice to Fadnavis, who was then the Chief Minister.
However, due to a change in his address after his tenure ended, the notice could not be served upon him. Hence the Bench of Justices SB Shukre and AL Pansare issued him fresh notice.
The Bench also issued notice to the newly-arraigned respondents, the State Bank of India and Axis Bank.
