Kanpur CAA protests: HC stays recovery notice over damage to property

Feb 17, 2020 21:36 IST

The Allahabad High Court has stayed a notice issued by the Kanpur administration seeking damages from a local resident over the destruction of property during protests against the amended citizenship law. The stay comes against the backdrop of scores of similar recovery notices sent by district authorities in Uttar Pradesh in recent weeks. The HC bench said the notice violated the guidelines laid down by the apex court in 2009 when it heard a similar case. The judges also said the issue was still pending before the Supreme Court.
