On Thursday, the seven Congress MPs had been suspended, for unruly behaviour, from Lok Sabha till the remainder of the current session which ends on April 3.
The current session of Parliament which resumed on March 2 has witnessed frequent adjournments due to opposition, primarily the Congress party, protests over the violence that erupted on February 23 in several localities across North East Delhi. The Congress party has been demanding that Union Home Minister Amit Shah resign in this regard.
HC adjourns pleas on Delhi violence to Mar 12
The Delhi High Court on Friday adjourned hearing on petitions relating to northeast Delhi violence witnessed in February to March 12.
A Division Bench of Chief Justice DN Patel and Justice C Harishankar posted the batch of petitions for further hearing.
Several petitions have been filed in connection with the violence, including one that sought registration of an FIR against politicians from the BJP and the Congress etc for alleged hate speeches. Other pleas sought rehabilitation of the injured survivors, and other relief.
A petition filed by CPI(M) leader Brinda Karat was also mentioned in the court on Friday, claiming that Delhi Police was not following the Code of Criminal Procedure, and thus making it difficult for victims to find their missing loved ones.
