New Delhi, March 11: The Supreme Court on Tuesday refused to entertain a Punjab-based company’s plea for a direction to the Centre and the Punjab Government to remove the “anarchists masquerading as protesters” who disrupted its business.
SM Logistics & Warehousing Company Private Limited alleged protesters occupied its warehouses in the name of protests against the three farm laws.
A Bench said the company could move the Punjab and Haryana High Court in three days for the relief. It also gave liberty to the petitioner to amend its petition and make the protesting organisations or groups as parties and the HC should consider the matter at the earliest, The Tribune reported.
The petitioner claimed its warehouse was used for storing goods of Adani Wilmar Ltd, Capital Foods Private Limited and Technova Imaging Systems Private Limited in temperature-controlled environment and that it had not been able to access its place of business since February 19.
The Bench said it can’t pass orders without hearing the protesters. It sought to know if he had made any representation to the district administration.
