0

New Delhi: The Delhi High Court on Friday issued notice to Centre and Delhi Police on a petition seeking the National Investigation Agency (NIA) probe into “anti-national forces” behind the protests against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA).

The petition, filed by one Ajay Gautam, sought a direction to investigate the role of “anti-national organization known as the People’s Front of India (PFI) which is funding, motivating, supporting and backing these anti-national protests.”

A Bench of D.N. Patel sought response and listed the matter for April 30. Protests against the CAA have been going on for over three months.

“It is not a normal protest, it is submitted that anti-national and Anti-Hindu forces are behind these protests and some vested interests/parties/countries are funding these protesters,” the plea stated.

The petitioner also raised concerns with regard to the closure of various roads in Delhi’s northeast area.
