The Supreme Court on Friday urged Delhi High Court to consider the Public Interest Litigation (PIL) filed by petitioner Anya Malhotra seeking a stay in construction work of Central Vista project in New Delhi amid the prevailing condition of coronavirus cases across the country, and asked High Court to issue orders related to the matter.
An Apex Court Bench comprising Justice Vineet Saran and Justice Dinesh Maheshwari today heard the petition for the Special Leave Petition (SLP) filed by the petitioner through his lawyer advocate Siddharth Luthra.
“As per the plea, the matter involves extreme urgency and disposed of the Special Leave Petition (SLP) filed by the petitioner, Anya Malhotra,” the top court bench said while hearing the petition.
Luthra submitted to the Apex Court bench that since there is a public health emergency, let the matter be taken by the Delhi High Court on May 10. Later the top court suggested Luthra that we can request High Court to consider the matter and hear it on Monday.
A plea was filed by Anya Malhotra before the Chief Justice of India-led bench, through a senior advocate, Siddharth Luthra, for an urgent hearing into the matter.
