The Supreme Court on Friday ordered Delhi High court to remove “beyond-the-law” label from its website as a result of a petition filed by a Delhi-based human rights group.
The court had earlier ordered the government to remove the “be-yond the legal” label in the state’s website.
The petitioners claimed the website of the Supreme Court had been “re-branded” to remove any mention of the “legal” clause of Article 370.
The “be beyond the law” label was removed by the court on Friday in its petition filed on behalf of the NGO Delhi Justice Centre against the government.
“It is beyond the legal scope of the Delhi government to create an ‘outside the law’ label on the website,” said the petition filed before the apex court.
“A petition was filed to remove it but the court ordered the petition be referred to a higher court, which will decide the matter.
The court also ordered the court to issue a stay order until it has reviewed the petition,” said activist Ashok Bhargava.
The government had on Thursday said it would not remove the label “be within the law”.
The government of India has always adhered to the fundamental principles of secularism, and the law is the supreme law of the land,” it added.
