New Delhi, Dec 1 (UNI) The Dera Sacha Sauda has withdrawn its petition from the Delhi High Court seeking action against the Delhi Police which had cancelled the Dera's permission to hold a religious sabha at Narela village in the capital.
Dera Sacha Sauda lawyer Ramesh Gautam said they had sought permission from the DDA as well as the Delhi Police to hold a religious congregation (kirtan) at Narela village on December 2, which was duly granted.
All arrangements were made for the same and a security deposit was made to the DDA as well as Delhi police, as per the norms.
However, on November 28, the Delhi Police had cancelled the sanction granted by them, citing security reasons. The Dera had moved the Delhi High Court challenging the Police orders.
Talking to UNI, Mr Gautam said the Dera had withdrawn its application from the High Court as the religious meet was aimed at spreading the message of love, peace and brotherhood and if it was a security threat, then they would have called off the gathering.
He confirmed that since the meet scheduled for Sunday had been cancelled there was no point in pursuing their petition in the court.
