Cracker-free fests: SC issues notice to Centre, Delhi

“We do not want all children to become ninjas”, a senior lawyer told the Supreme Court on Thursday, taking a cue from Chief Justice H L Dattu’s reference to his grandson looking like a ninja by wearing a mask to avoid high levels of pollution in Delhi.

The remark was made by Kapil Sibal when the apex court was hearing a plea filed by three infants against the use of loud fire-crackers during the festivals of Diwali and Dussehra.

Besides the Centre and Delhi Government, the Bench also issued notices to Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) and Delhi Pollution Control Board (DPCB) and fixed the plea for hearing on next Friday.
