Delhi High Court takes suo motu cognizance on various images of marketplaces circulated on WhatsApp where people were not wearing masks and not following COVID19 protocols. The Court issues notice to Centre and Delhi government asking them to file status report.

The high court asked the Centre and Delhi government to take strict measures, sensitise shopkeepers and hold meetings with markets and vendors associations in this regard.

A vacation bench of Justices Navin Chawla and Asha Menon took note of certain photographs sent to one of the judges of the high court by an AIIMS doctor showing scant regard for COVID-19 protocols by street vendors in markets.

"We have paid a huge price in the second wave. We don''t know if there is any household which has not suffered in the second wave, closely or remotely," the bench observed.
