‘You can’t block public road’: SC on Shaheen Bagh protest

The Supreme Court on Monday issued notice to the Centre, Delhi government and the police on the pleas seeking removal of protesters from Shaheen Bagh.

While hearing pleas to remove the anti-CAA protesters from Shaheen Bagh, the Apex Court said 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 the entire city,” the Supreme Court noted.

The Top Court refused to pass any order without hearing the other side and listed the matter for hearing on February 17.

Protesters have been sitting at Shaheen Bagh for nearly two months against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act.
