Mumbai, Sep 29 (PTI) A court here on Thursday asked jail authorities to allow activist Rona Wilson, an accused in the Elgar Parishad-Maoist links case, to send a letter to the Chief Justice of the Bombay High Court seeking that a bench be formed to hear his pending petition.

The hearing on the petition, which seeks that the case against him be quashed, is getting delayed for want of a bench and on some occasions high court judges have recused themselves from hearing Elgar-related pleas, as per Wilson's yet-to-be-sent letter.

On Thursday, Wilson sought a direction from the special court for National Investigation Agency (NIA) cases here to jail authorities to forward his letter to the Chief Justice.
