It said the families staying there had “voluntarily” left the camp and were “not removed by police or the government”.

Petitioner Shaikh Mujtaba Farooq, represented by Senior Advocate Colin Gonsalves, submitted riot victims are facing severe problems with regard to food and medical help.

Delhi government’s standing counsel (criminal) Rahul Mehra, opposed the contention. He submitted that now the camp has been removed.
