Nagpur: The Opposition on Tuesday moved a breach of privilege notice against Maharashtra Government in the Legislative Council over "leakage" of the report of Ram Pradhan Committee, set up to probe 26/11 terror attacks.

House Chairman Shivajirao Deshmukh said he would discuss the matter with all officials concerned, including former IAS officer Ram Pradhan, before taking a decision on the notice.

BJP and Shiv Sena gave two separate notices to the Chairman of the House against Chief Minister, Deputy Chief Minister, Home Minister, Chief Secretary and Additional Chief Secretary of the state.

BJP leader Pandurang Phundkar claimed that the report is available on the internet but the Government refuses to table it in the House.

Chief Minister Ashok Chavan had promised to table the report in the session, he said.

Shiv Sena leader Divakar Raote also moved a notice, saying the Government failed to table the report in the House but it was made "public by media".

The Government went to the Supreme Court against the decision of the High Court asking it to submit the Pradhan Committee report. The Apex court stayed publication of the report, Raote said.
