Anti-CAA posters: UP moves SC against HC order

March 11, 2020 18:16 IST

The Uttar Pradesh government moved the Supreme Court on Wednesday challenging the Allahabad high court order which directed the state adminstration to remove posters of those accused of vandalism during anti-Citizenship Amendment Act protests in December.


The appeal filed by the state is scheduled to be heard on Thursday by a vacation bench of justices U U Lalit and Aniruddha Bose, said advocate general for Uttar Pradesh Raghvendra Singh.

The high court had on March 9 asked the Uttar Pradesh government not to install such posters "without having the authority of law".

It had directed the district magistrate and the Lucknow police commissioner to submit a compliance report in this regard on or before March 16.
