Mumbai: Defying the Supreme Court’s order of not exceeding the height of Pyramid more than 20 feet, various politically-backed organisations here on Thursday celebrated the Dahi Handi event with complete zeal and launched a protest against the apex court directives by wearing black bands.

What police said?

  • Mumbai Police spokesperson Ashok Dudhe said that celebrations across the city are being video-graphed.
  • Those breaching the SC’s orders shall be booked and prosecuted depending on the kind of violation.
  • In Thane, an organisation backed by the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) hung the Dahi Handi at a height of 49 feet in an attempt to get named in the Guinness Book of World Records.

  • The SC division bench of justices Uday U Lalit and L Nageswara Rao upheld the Bombay High Court order on Wednesday.
  • Participation of minors and constructing pyramids of height more than 20 feet during teh Dahi-Handi event were prohibited in the court’s ruling.
