New Delhi: The Supreme Court will on Tuesday hear exiled Bangladeshi author Tasleema Nasreen`s plea for quashing the charges against her for controversial tweet criticising a meeting between Aam Aadmi Party chief Arvind Kejriwal and religious leader Maulana Tauqeer Raza Khan.

The apex court bench headed by Chief Justice P. Sathasivam agreed to hear the appeal following a mention by senior counsel K.K. Venugopal seeking the charges against the exiled Bangladeshi writer be quashed.

Nasreen has also sought the scrapping of Section 66(a) of the Information Technology Act which provides for the arrest of the person hurting the sentiments of others through offensive remarks or information through electronic media, including social networking sites.
