Supreme Court refuses to admit plea on National Security Act
NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court on Friday refused to entertain a plea challenging the imposition of National Security Act (NSA) in few states as also in the national capital amid anti-CAA protests.
A bench of Justices Arun Mishra and Indira Banerjee said that it cannot pass a blanket order with regard to the imposition of NSA and asked lawyer M.L. Sharma to withdraw the plea.
The apex court asked Mr Sharma to file a fresh petition or an interim application in pending pleas on the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) giving specific details of violations of NSA.
Mr Sharma's plea said NSA has been imposed to curb and pressure people protesting aga-inst the CAA, National Population Register (NPR) and National Register of Indian Citizens (NRIC).
