Lawyers for the Campaigners led by Justice Sai on Tuesday urged the Supreme Court to speak on the matter. He insisted the order speaks for itself and restrains his clients indefinitely.
The AG however disagreed.
He described the case filed by the campaigners as misconceived and completely unwarranted. He explained that under the High Court rules Ex Parte orders are to last for 10 days.
He added that by the operation of law, the order granted on May 6, stopping the May 9, protest has since elapsed. He therefore urged the court to dismiss the case since no order is in force currently barring the protest.
The AG however added that even before the expiration of the order, a fresh application for an injunction has been made by the IGP knowing well that the May 6 order was to last 10 days.
The court in this ruling noted that the rules of the High Court allows such Ex Parte injunctions to last only 10 days. It thus said the Judge erred. The court therefore proceeded to wish that portion of the order that barred the group indefinitely.
