Lucknow Bench of the court said that after withdrawal of these security cover, separate order may be passed only for those cases where there is an actual threat of any nature.
The Division Bench comprising Justice Imtiyaz Murtza and DK Upadhyaya, passed the order on a PIL filed by a local social activist. The petitioner Nutan Thakur challenged the action of state government to provide security cover to these persons. Thakur told PTI that earlier the court had directed to the UP government to file affidavit in this matter. The court fixed April 7 as the next date of hearing.
