The Supreme Court has issued a notice to Centre and police on pleas seeking removal of protesters from Shaheen Bagh as it refused to pass order.
The Supreme Court on hearing the petitions seeking the removal of anti-CAA protesters from Shaheen Bagh, said that protesters cannot block public road and create inconvenience for others. "If you want to protest, there can be some area where you protest. You cannot block a public road. Can you block a public area? There must be defined areas of protest,"
The Supreme Court will not pass any direction on Shaheen Bagh protest without hearing the other side and listed the matter for hearing on February 17. Restrictions have been imposed on the stretch as also the Okhla underpass due to protests against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA) and National Register of Citizens (NRC).
The Bench suggested that there needs to be an identified area for carrying out protests of this nature. It also questioned whether a public road can be blocked in this manner. Two petitions have been filed for the clearance of Kalindi Kunj Road, which is in proximity to the site of the protests. A plea has also been filed in the Delhi High Court highlighting the same issues. The high court had dismissed the petition without any formal order and had asked concerned authorities to look into it.
