Taking suo moto cognizance of the matter of holdings put up by the Uttar Pradesh government containing the alleged CAA Protestors names, the Allahabad High Court decided to hold a special sitting on Sunday at 10 AM.

The court ordered on the matter that "good sense should prevail on the State and it must remove the hoardings and apprise the court about this at 3". In this special sitting, the bench lashed the Yogi government action of putting up the posters and termed it as "highly unjust" and called it as an absolute "encroachment" on personal liberty of the persons concerned.

A UP government spokesman told the state government that the posters have been up on the Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath's directive at important intersections, including the main crossing in the busy Hazratganj area and in front of the Assembly building.

The posters were hung by the Lucknow administration with details of about 60 people and issued recovery notices for their alleged involvement in violence during CAA protests on December 19, 2019.


The posters also carried some notable figures like activist Sadaf Jafar, human rights lawyer Mohammad Shoaib, activist and former IPS officer S R Darapuri and more.
