Supreme Court suspends ruling that lifted SIMI banAugust 6th, 2008 - 4:22 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, Aug 6 (IANS) The Supreme Court Wednesday suspended an anti-terror tribunal ruling that had lifted the ban on the Students’ Islamic Movement of India (SIMI), designated a terror organisation by the government. A bench of Chief Justice K.G. Balakrishnan and Justice A.K. Mathur suspended the tribunal’s ruling on an urgent plea by the government of India which said: “Irrecoverable damage will be done” to the country’s steps against terrorist activities if the ruling was not suspended.
Justice Geeta Mittal of the Delhi High Court who heads the anti-terror tribunal constituted under the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act had Tuesday lifted the ban on SIMI activities.
“The material given by the home ministry is insufficient, so the ban cannot be continued,” Mittal had said in her 267-page order that was given to home ministry late Tuesday in a sealed cover.
The lifting of the ban had sent shock waves among the intelligence and police officials in the country.
