High Court wants beggar-free Delhi

A division bench comprising Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul and Justice Ajit Bharioke of the Delhi High Court on Monday directed the state government to implement stringent measures and co-ordinate with the neighbouring states to curb the menace of begging in the capital of India.

Counsel for the Delhi government submitted to the court that co-ordination with the states is difficult without the intervention of the central government. The court then issued a notice to the central government on the issue.

On July 21, the court had pulled up the state government for its lax approach in dealing with beggars and set a 15-day deadline for it to explain steps taken to curb the menace.

The court had also asked the government to have more mobile courts to deal with beggary cases.
