HC re­fuses to put limit on Ra­van ef­fi­gies

The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - Times City -

New Delhi: Delhi high court has dis­missed a plea that had sought to limit the num­ber of ef­fi­gies of Ra­van or oth­ers to be burnt in the na­tional cap­i­tal on Dussehra evening, say­ing a pol­icy on this needs to be drafted by the Cen­tre and not by the court.

A bench of Chief Jus­tice D N Pa­tel and Jus­tice C Hari Shankar said it has heard the coun­sel for both the sides and looked into the facts and cir­cum­stances of the case, but it sees “no rea­son” to en­ter­tain this writ pe­ti­tion and is­sue di­rec­tions to the re­spon­dents to frame the pol­icy. If any pol­icy is to be drafted by the re­spon­dents for the pur­pose as stated in this writ pe­ti­tion, they are at lib­erty to frame such a pol­icy, the court said.
