Delhi HC: Lawyers can travel during curfew in Delhi, if they have valid ID


New Delhi, May 25 (ILNS): The Delhi High Court today ordered that no authority shall stop any advocate in the NCT of Delhi (during the lockdown), if he/she produces valid Identity Card, whereby the person can establish that he/she is an advocate.

Justice Suresh Kait was haring a plea wanting a direction to Delhi Police to comply with the curfew order of April 19, which had exempted Advocates from producing e-pass for travelling during the curfew period.

The court held that the authorities cannot stop anyone who can produce a valid ID, proving that he is an Advocate. The court further held that the present order must be communicated to the Commissioner of Police, who shall communicate the same to the DCP, who shall, in turn, communicate to all police officers.

The present petition was filed by Advocate Dharmendra Kumar, who has claimed in the petition that he was harassed by the police because he did not possess an e-pass while travelling during the curfew, despite the curfew order of April 19 exempting Advocates.

The argument of Delhi Police was that the petitioner was not harassed and that he was asked to leave, once he had produced a I-Card. ILNS/AN/SS/RJ
