New Delhi, Aug 5 (UNI) The Union Government today said it would take 'necessary remedial action on priority', regarding the Delhi High Court order lifting the ban on Students Islamic Movement of India (SIMI), an organisation facing allegations of involvement in several bomb blasts in the country.
Reacting to the order of a single judge tribunal of the Delhi High Court, Home Ministry spokesperson said, ''preliminary perusal of the tribunal's order shows that the ban on SIMI has not been upheld on the technical ground. Home Ministry will examine the order in detail and look for all possible remedies. Necessary remedial action will be taken on priority.'' The tribunal found the evidence produced by the Union Home Ministry insufficient to justify the ban on SIMI.
It may be noted here that SIMI was banned for the first time on September 27, 2001. The organisation had challenged in the Delhi High Court the extension of the ban imposed on February 7 this year.
