Withholding the pension of a freedom fighter was not justified, the Bombay High Court has said and directed the Maharashtra government to respond to a plea filed by the 90-year-old wife of a freedom fighter, who died 56 years ago, seeking benefits of a government pension scheme. A division bench of Justices Ujjal Bhuyan and Madhav Jamdar issued the order on September 24.
