Supreme Court says occupying public places for protests is not acceptable
The Supreme Court has said that occupying public places for protests is not acceptable and such a space cannot be occupied indefinitely.
The top court’s verdict came on a plea against the Anti-Citizenship Amendment Act protests which had led to blocking of a road in Shaheen Bagh in the national capital last December.
A bench headed by Justice S K Kaul said that public places cannot be occupied indefinitely like during the Shaheen Bagh protests.
The bench also said that Delhi Police ought to have taken action to clear Shaheen Bagh area from the protesters.
