Shaheen Bagh: Mediators file final report in SC

New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Monday deferred the petition seeking removal of protesters from Shaheen Bagh to Wednesday (February 26) after receiving the affidavits of interlocutors Sanjay Hegde and Sadhna Ramachandran, which was filed before a bench of Justices S K Kaul and K M Joseph a day after former Chief Information Commissioner and the third mediator Wajahat Habibullah filed his affidavit in the top court.

Submitting the report in a sealed cover, advocate Ramachandran expressed her gratitude to the bench for having gotten the "opportunity" to mediate with the anti-CAA/NRC protesters and said it "was a learning experience".

The top court said it would need two days to peruse through the reports and deferred the hearing to Wednesday. However, the bench denied the petitioners a copy of the report, clarifying that the role of interlocutors was not to gather material for the petitioner and that their report was for the court's records only.
