Top Court Issues Notice to Delhi BJP Chief Manoj Tiwari for Interfering in Sealing Drive

The Supreme Court today issued a contempt notice to Delhi BJP Chief Manoj Tiwari after taking cognisance of a report submitted by the top court appointed monitoring committee seeking stringent action against Tiwari for disobeying court orders.

The committee in their report has sought action against the BJP MP for allegedly breaking the lock of a sealed house in the Gokalpuri area in northeast Delhi.

The monitoring committee requests this court to pass stringent directions including initiation of contempt proceedings against Manoj Tiwari, MP for seal tampering so that sealing operations may continue uninterrupted as per the direction of this court,” the report reads.

After examining the monitoring committee report, a bench of Justices Madan B Lokur, S Abdul Nazeer and Deepak Gupta observed that it reflected a “disturbing state of affairs”, as it alleged the BJP MP of interfering in sealing drive.

The SC bench further observed that:

“[It is] unfortunate that an elected representative allegedly tried to defy [the] apex court’s orders.”

The court then directed the BJP Chief to appear before it on September 25.
