New Delhi, Dec 14: The Delhi High Court on Friday refused to pass an order to curb the menace posed by the capital"s Blueline bus fleet.

Justices Mukul Mudgal and Reva Khetrapal said: "We have to see the effect of the Supreme Court order (of December 6) on the proceedings of this case. "We have not had the time to go through the judgement. It has just been handed over to us by the Amicus Curiae," the Bench added. The Bench was hearing a suo motu matter, which it had earlier taken into cognisance, in view of the growing accidents caused by blueline buses in Delhi.

The court refused to pass any order on the matter without going through the judgement which had deprecated the tendency of "judicial over-reach".

On Monday, the apex court had castigated the Delhi High Court for entertaining Public Interest Litigation (PILs) on a host of public issues including the begging menace, nursery admission and traffic issues particularly the blueline menace.
