Solicitor General Tushar Mehta on Tuesday also told the Supreme Court, which is hearing the sedition law case, that the Centre has prepared a draft for the reconsideration of the law

Centre told the Supreme Court on Wednesday that cases under Section 124A of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) be registered only when area Superintendent of Police is satisfied with registering the case give reasons in writing.

Such satisfaction will be open to be challenged in court, Solicitor General Tushar Mehta said in the Supreme Court.

Solicitor General Tushar Mehta on Tuesday also told the Supreme Court, which is hearing the sedition law case, that the Centre has prepared a draft for the reconsideration of the law.

The draft states that an FIR will be registered with sedition charges only if a police officer of the rank of SP says there is a valid reason for the same.
