Delhi HC junks plea seeking barricades removal, relocation of protesters in Shaheen Bagh

New Delhi [India], Jan 10 (ANI): The Delhi High Court on Friday refused to entertain a petition seeking removal of police barricades in Delhi's Shaheen Bagh area contending that it is causing traffic issues, while also demanding protesters to be shifted to some other location.

Scores of protesters have been agitating in the area against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act and National Register of Citizens (NRC) for over a month now.

Barricades have been put in place to keep the stir in control. The road the petitioner has alluded to is widely used by office-goers and other commuters.

The Delhi Police has time and again issued an advisory regarding closure or obstruction due to traffic in the area. (ANI)
