The contempt plea came up after Tiwari had broken the seal of a locked house in an unauthorised colony in North East Delhi's Gokulpur area. The court noted that it did feel that it amounted to contempt.

There is no doubt that Tiwari has taken law into his hands. We are pain ed by the machismo and manner in which Tiwari has acted. As an elected representative, he should have behaved more responsibly rather than taking law into his own hands.

A Bench headed by Justice Madan B Lokur had on October 30 reserved orders after hearing arguments in the matter. Tiwari had accused the court-mandated monitoring committee of terrorising the people of Delhi. The panel, however, had claimed that he was trying to make the court a "political battleground".

Tiwari had claimed that monitoring committee has exceeded its jurisdiction and conducted sealing drive in unauthorised colonies that were protected under the law.
