Togadia and another VHP functionary Yella Reddy have on Tuesday filed an appeal in the state high court against the commissioner’s order. The appellant’s advocate requested that the case could be immediately taken up. The court consented to hear the arguments of Wednesday, Jan 20.

It was argued by the advocate that the during the proposed visit this week, Togadia had no plans to address any meeting. He had paid a similar visit to Bengaluru last week. No unpleasant incidents had taken place. During his earlier visits to Mangaluru, no such instances had been seen, he said.
