Supreme Court issues notices to Centre and Delhi top cop Asthana

New Delhi/UNI: The Supreme Court on Friday issued notices to the union government and Delhi Police Commissioner Rakesh Asthana during hearing a petition challenging a Delhi High Court decision upholding Asthan's appointment as police chief.

A bench headed by Justice DY Chandrachud sought responses from the Centre and Asthana within two weeks.

"We will issue notice to the parties. The parties have to file their respective replies within two week, and we will hear the matter later," Justice Chandrachud said.

Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi, appearing for Asthana, told the top court he will file the reply.

Prashant Bhushan, appearing for petitioner an NGO called CPIL, said Rakesh Asthana had the opportunity to file a reply to the writ for a long time and the Centre has filed a reply in the Delhi High Court also.

The issues are the same so they will not need much time, he argued.
