The Jamiat Ulema-i-Hind has filed a petition in the Supreme Court against the MCD’s bulldozer operation, which will be heard today.
A two-judge bench of the Supreme Court will hear the bulldozer operation carried out by MCD in Jahangirpuri today. The case of Jamiat Ulema-i-Hind v. North Delhi Municipal Corporation is before a bench of Justice L. Nageshwar Rao and Justice BR Gowai. The hearing is likely to be held after 11.30 am.
The Jamiat Ulema-i-Hind has filed two petitions in the Supreme Court against the MCD’s action. The first petition seeks to deprive locals of their basic civil rights by operating bulldozers without notice, while the second petition seeks to curb the government’s tendency to use bulldozers abruptly in many states of the country.
During the hearing, the petitioners are also considering mentioning the incident which took place on Wednesday. He said that it was contempt of court to drive a bulldozer even an hour and a half after the restraining order of the bench headed by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. In this regard, legal action should be taken against the Municipal Corporation and the police administration.
It should be noted that the case of Jahangir Puri is spreading and now the news is that a protest against the violence of Jahangir Puri will be held on April 21 at 2 pm in Jamia Millia. The protest is being staged by the All India Students Union against bulldozers and sponsored attacks on the homes of a particular community.
On the other hand, Congress leader Ajay Maken tweeted that it was wrong to use bulldozers in Jahangirpuri without any notice. He said that he would visit Jahangirpuri this morning along with senior leaders.
According to the news portal Aaj Tak, the MCD operation continued for about two hours in Jahangirpuri on Wednesday. The MCD had driven seven bulldozers to remove illegal encroachments. In Jahangirpuri, both the Supreme Court and the Delhi High Court intervened and on Wednesday stayed the MCD’s action to remove illegal structures from the bulldozers. ۔ A bench headed by Chief Justice of India NV Ramana has upheld the status quo.
It may be recalled that on April 16, during the Hanuman Jayanti procession in Jahangirpuri area, stone pelting took place between the two sects in which several policemen and a local man were injured. Police have arrested 25 people, including two minors, in connection with the case. A case has been registered against Vishwa Hindu Parishad and Bajrang Dal workers for holding a procession without permission.
