Habibullah missing from 1st meet with Shaheen Bagh protesters

New Delhi, Feb 19 (IANS) While two of three Supreme Court appointed interlocutors reached Shaheen Bagh on Wednesday, the third interlocutor former Chief Information Commissioner Wajahat Habibullah skipped the meet with protesters for reasons unknown.

The Supreme Court on Monday had appointed a team of three interlocutors to be led by senior advocate Sanjay Hedge to talk to the Shaheen Bagh protesters with regard to shifting the protest site, and file report in the court.

Former CIC, Habibullah was part of this team along with senior lawyers Sadhna Ramachandran and Sanjay Hegde.

Habibullah on Tuesday had claimed that he had not got any official word for his inclusion in the team of interlocutors, which is being seen as a reason for his absence from the meet.

Though he was unavailable for comments, as calls made to him went unanswered.

A bench headed by Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul and Justice K.M. Joseph on Monday citing replication of protests involving blocking of public roads, had said: "We are concerned, what will happen if people start hitting the streets and blocking the roads while protesting... it is a concern."

The court had suggested that the Delhi Police may also offer an alternative site to the protesters at Shaheen Bagh.
