The Koregaon Bhima Inquiry Commission has decided to summon NCP chief Sharad Pawar for deposition in the case of caste violence near here in 2018.

The commission’s chairman, retired Justice J.N. Patel, noted that Mr. Pawar has filed an affidavit before the panel and he would be summoned to depose, the judicial panel’s lawyer Ashish Satpute told PTI on Tuesday.

“A summon to this effect will be issued,” he said.

Mr. Pawar is likely to be summoned during the last phase of the hearing by the commission, the lawyer added.
