New Delhi, (UNI)

The Supreme Court on Tuesday issued notices to four states - Uttar Pradesh, Assam, Manipur and Arunachal Pradesh on a petition filed by anti-CAA activist Sharjeel Imam seeking to club all FIRs lodged against him in different parts of the country for his alleged inflammatory speeches. 


A bench comprising Justices Ashok Bhushan, Sanjay Kishan Kaul and MR Shah asked these states to file their replies within two weeks when the matter would come up for further hearing. 


Sharjeel has also sought transfer of all cases filed in different states to Delhi and probe by a single agency.
