The Bench of Justice Rakesh Kumar Jain wanted to know the provisions of law under which the permission was sought and the circumstances preventing the holding of the congregation.

In the other case, S. Simranjit Singh Mann’s counsel Simranjit Singh placed before the Bench of Justice Jitendra Chauhan a list of 156 persons taken into illegal custody by the Punjab Police in connection with the event.

S. Mann contended in his petition that a complete list could not be prepared following the crackdown by the state police. The High Court has fixed November 23 as the next date of hearing.
