The Delhi High Court today adjourned till March 20 the hearing in a batch of petitions concerning the Delhi Riots that broke out in the city's North East area last month.
The Division Bench of Chief Justice DN Patel and Justice C Hari Shankar adjourned the hearing in the matter after Solicitor General Tushar Mehta sought accommodation for a "day or two". Mehta said,
"My reply is ready...yesterday, we were given some factual details. Reply has to be modified."
The request for adjournment was opposed by Senior Advocate Colin Gonsalves, who appeared for petitioner Harsh Mander. He asked that he may be allowed to argue his petition in the afternoon.
Advocate Suroor Mander, who appears in the Rahul Roy matter, also sought hearing for grant of certain interim relief.
However, the Court proceeded to adjourn hearing in the petitions till March 20.
It also directed the Central government to file its reply on or before Monday, March 16.
