Court questions government on plea against Amod Kanth

The Delhi High Court Friday issued a notice to the central government on a plea to withdraw medals awarded to former Delhi Police officer Amod Kanth and one of his colleagues for their role in maintaining law and order during the 1984 anti-Sikh riots in the city.

The division bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justice Sanjeev Khanna issued notice to the central government, the Delhi Police commissioner, Kanth and his colleague, and the then station house officer of Paharganj police station, and sought their responses by Sep 16. 

The notice came during the court hearing of a petition filed by Amrik Singh Lovely, who has challenged an earlier single-judge bench order rejecting the plea in April.
