New Delhi, Aug 25 (UNI) The Supreme Court today extended the ban on the Students Islamic Movement of India for another six weeks and directed SIMI to file its response within four weeks.

A bench comprising Chief Justice KG Balakrishnan and Justice P Sathasivam fixed September 24 as the next date of hearing.

The Union Government had come in appeal against a Delhi High Court order dated August 5 vide which Justice Geeta Mittal had lifted the ban on SIMI and had quashed the notification dated February 7, 2008 on the grounds that the government had not produced any fresh evidence against the banned organisation showing its involvement in terrorism and anti-national activities.
