Payal filed the appeal before a division bench after a single judge had ordered her on August 19 to vacate the 7 Akbar Road bungalow in New Delhi that she was residing in.

According to reports, she had claimed that she and her sons were living in a rented flat which is not appropriate on security grounds. She had stated that the government should provide her and her sons with accommodation on parity with others who enjoyed similar security status.
