On Wednesday, the Delhi High Court sought the city government’s stand on a plea to make it mandatory for pillion riders to wear helmets irrespective of their gender and religion.

 Issuing notice to the government on the plea and seeking its reply within four weeks, a bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justice Sanjiv Khanna fixed October 19 for further hearing of the matter. 

Petitioner Ulhas, who claimed himself to be a social film maker, submitted that with the intervention of this very court, the city government had framed rules making headgear mandatory for motor cyclists and pillion riders but Sikh men and women have been exempted. 

During the last hearing when the PIL was filed in the high court, the bench had said the manner, in which the petition was drafted, the court could not treat it as PIL and had suggested that Ulhas properly draft the petition challenging the Motor Vehicle Act and the Delhi Motor Vehicle Rules.
