A plea was moved in the Delhi high court on Friday challenging the police’s letter seeking permission from the government to turn Jangli Ram Pahalwan Stadium into a “temporary jail” for anti-CAA protestors on the assembly election day. 

The petition was mentioned before a bench of Chief Justice D N Patel and Justice C Hari Shankar and it agreed to list the matter for hearing on February 10. 

The plea by a social activist apprehended that his voting right as well as that of other protestors will be curbed in the wake of Delhi Police’s requisition given to the principal secretary (Home) for setting up a temporary jail at the stadium in Kanjhawala for accommodating those who may be detained en mass without any reasonable basis. 

Petitioner Jafar Ahsan Karimi sought direction to the principal secretary (Home) to recall the letter or the approval order, if any, for the requisition given by the police on January 29 as it is arbitrary.
