Public Places can’t be indefinitely occupied for Protest: Supreme Court

The Supreme Court on Wednesday gave its verdict on a batch of petitions against the Shaheen Bagh protests, saying public places and roads cannot be occupied by people indefinitely for demonstration.

The verdict was pronounced via video conferencing by a bench of the apex court headed by Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul.

The Apex court bench said, “Public spaces and places can’t be occupied indefinitely whether in Shaheen Bagh or elsewhere. The administration must keep such spaces free from obstruction. The protest should go on at the designated places.”
