Supreme Court said, If nothing works, we will leave it to authorities to deal with situation in Shaheen bagh. Protestors have made their point and Shaheen Bagh protests have gone on for quite some time, says SC.
"There are lines and boundaries. You want to protest. No problem. But tomorrow another section of society may hold protests in another area... There must be some method so that traffic flow is free," the Supreme Court said.
Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, on behalf of the Delhi government, said the authorities don't want to escalate the issue.
The Supreme court appointed the mediators after the Delhi Police alleged the protesters, mostly women, are "keeping children in the front as a shield".
"We have no problem with 5,000 protests. We just want those roads are not blocked. What's troubling us is a very limited scope which is blocking of roads. There is a fundamental right to protest." said SC
