The Supreme Court on Wednesday ruled against the legality of the Shaheen Bagh protest, adding that public spaces cannot be occupied indefinitely by protesters. "Public spaces and places can't be occupied indefinitely whether in Shaheen Bagh or elsewhere," said the judge, reading out the operative part of the judgment. The judgment came on a petition filed several months ago. The petitioner had approached court for a direction to shift the anti-CAA protesters of Shaheen Bagh to an alternative site as they had been “blocking” public movement and causing traffic snarls in the area.
