SC issue notices to centre and Delhi govt over Shaheen Bagh

Protestors at Shaheen Bagh cannot block public roads, create inconvenience: SC


The Supreme Court has issued notices to the centre and the Delhi government over the death of a four-month-old at Delhi’s Shaheen Bagh where the longest protest against the citizenship law CAA has been going on.

“Can a four-month-old child go for the protest?” the Supreme Court asked, coming down heavily on the lawyers who say they are appearing for mothers of children sitting in protest at Shaheen Bagh.

A Supreme Court bench, headed by Chief Justice of India SA Bobde, took note of the incident after a 12-year-old National Bravery Award Winner wrote to Chief Justice Bobde over the baby’s death. In her letter, Zen Gunratan Sadavarte sought probe into the infant’s death.

Four-month-old Mohammad Jahan was taken to the protest site at Shaheen Bagh by his parents almost every day. He died of severe cold and congestion on Januray 30 after being exposed to the bitter cold.

The Supreme Court today said the anti-CAA protesters at Delhi’s Shaheen Bagh cannot block public roads and create inconvenience for others. A bench comprising justices S K Kaul and K M Joseph issued notices to the Centre, Delhi Government and the police on the pleas seeking removal of protesters from the area.

The bench said, there is a law and people have grievance against it. It said, they are entitled to protest but one cannot block the public roads. The bench said, there cannot be indefinite period of protest in such an area. The bench further said, it would not pass any direction without hearing the other side and posted the matter for 17th of February.
