SC restrains Delhi govt from demolishing night shelters

New Delhi: Taking suo motu cognisance of reports that night shelters have been razed in the city in the midst of winter, the Supreme Court today restrained the Delhi Government from demolishing any such shelter, temporary or permanent, in the capital.

A bench of justices Dalveer Bhandari and Deepak Verma while asking the government to refrain from demolishing such shelters, listed for urgent hearing tomorrow the issue.

“Do not take any steps to demolish otherwise we will pass orders,” the bench observed.

The apex court’s direction comes in the wake of media reports about demolition of night shelters by the DDA and other authorities in utter disregard of the lives of thousands of homeless destitutes who have been spending the night in such facilities.
