•    LG approves withdrawal of cases against migrants for violating lockdown measures during the pandemic.
•    Also orders Delhi Police to file a closure in such cases

The Lt. Governor, Shri V.K. Saxena has approved the withdrawal of 15 cases by the Directorate of Prosecution, GNCTD registered against 64 migrants for allegedly violating lockdown measures.  Shri Saxena has also directed the Delhi Police to file a closure report in 10 similar cases involving more than 100 migrants. Taking a humane and reasoned view that these violations were essentially petty in nature committed by poor migrants in a situation of extreme distress caused by the pandemic related lockdown, the LG has said that this decision will save the accused from unnecessary harassment and running around.

In line with the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India’s Judgment, dated 09.06.2022, the LG has taken this view keeping in mind the hapless and helpless condition of the migrants in the National Capital during the pandemic, many of whom had lost their livelihoods and could not afford their rents and existential needs.

It may be noted that 43 such cases under Section (51) of the Disaster Management Act, 2005 and other offences were filed against the migrant labourers during the lockdown for allegedly violating measures of the lockdown by moving on the roads. Of these 43 cases, 18 have already been disposed/decided upon by respective Courts. In 15 cases, where charge sheets have already been filed in the Courts, the LG has ordered for withdrawal of prosecution by the Directorate of Prosecution, under section (321) of the CrPC and in the remaining 10 cases where charge sheets are yet to be filed (07) or accused are untraced (03), the LG has asked the Delhi Police to file a closure report.
