New Delhi: The apex court itself has refused to reconsider the verdict given in Delhi against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA). There was a demand for a hearing with the farmers' movement on this matter, which has been rejected by the court. The court said that we have considered the reconsideration petition and the record on the civil appeal.
The apex court said that the rights of others in a public place cannot be affected by protesting for a long time. The court said that the right to protest can never be anywhere and everywhere. It is noteworthy that an application was filed against the CAA on behalf of the women who performed in Shaheen Bagh. In the petition, it was said on behalf of the petitioners that in October 2020, the court should hear again the decision given by the apex court.
Earlier on February 11, the court refused to grant bail to RTI activist Akhil Gogoi. He was arrested under the UAPA during the Anti-CAA Protest in Assam. Akhil Gogoi was arrested in December 2019 in connection with an alleged violent protest against the CAA in Assam. He is currently lodged in Guwahati Central Jail.
