Watch | COVID-19 Bulletin: PIL in Delhi HC for a Lockdown in the Capital Again

The number of patients could escalate to around over 5.5 lakh by July end, the plea cites.

A PIL has been moved in the Delhi high court seeking a direction to the AAP government to impose a strict lockdown in the national capital again. The plea has been filed by a lawyer – Anirban Mondal and his employee Pawan Kumar.

In their plea, they say that the Delhi government itself admitted there would be around one lakh COVID-19 cases in the National Capital by end of June and the number would escalate to around over 5.5 lakh by July end. In such a scenario, the government should consider imposing a strict lockdown in Delhi, the plea said.
