Notices to Centre, Police on Section 144

Staff Reporter

NEW DELHI: The Delhi High Court on Monday issued notices to the Union Government and the Delhi Police on a petition by one of the victims of the Bhopal gas tragedy challenging repeated promulgation of Section 144 of the Criminal Procedure Code in the Central Delhi area of New Delhi district.

Seeking quashing of this practice adopted by the Delhi Police, counsel for the petitioner, Prashant Bhushan, submitted that it was a case of misuse of the law which was violative of the Fundamental Right to protest. The petitioner, Bano Bee, moved the Court when she was not allowed to stay overnight at Jantar Mantar with some of the victims of the tragedy. As an interim relief, she had urged the Court to quash the latest promulgation of Section 144 but it was refused.

A Division Bench comprising Justice Dipak Misra and Justice Manmohan asked the respondents to file replies by August 25, the next date of hearing.
