The Supreme Court has agreed to hear another plea seeking a direction to the Centre to try to bring back the Kohinoor diamond from the United Kingdom and tagged it for hearing with a similar pending PIL.
A three-judge bench comprising Chief Justice T S Thakur and Justices A M Khanwilkar and D Y Chandrachud said it would hear the plea alongwith other pending PIL on the issue.
The fresh plea has been filed by ‘Heritage Bengal’, a registered organisation, through its lawyer Danish Zubair Khan.
Senior advocate Soumya Chakraborty, appearing for the organisation, said the Centre be asked to try to bring the precious diamond back. (PTI)
