A division bench of Justice A S Oka and Justice A A Sayed was hearing a petition filed by the Nariman Point-Churchgate Citizens’ Association seeking regulation of protests in the area. On December 8, 1997, the High Court had passed an interim order which directed all morchas to terminate at Azad Maidan near Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST).

The petitioners’ lawyer, S C Naidu, argued that although the procedure for terminating morchas and dharnas at Azad Maidan is based on HC’s interim order, the government is yet to come out with a proper policy.
In 2011, the government had set up a committee — comprising additional chief secretary (home), police commissioner and the BMC commissioner — which would look into the issue and come up with a policy. However, till date, the committee has not met even once, the court was informed.
The bench has now directed three officials to meet within a month and take a decision on the policy.
