The Supreme Court in its order by which it had stayed the Delhi High Court order on feeding stray dogs in Delhi.
A bench headed by Justice U U Lalit vacated the stay after being informed that the parties had settled the matter in the High Court. It also noted that the NGO on whose plea it had stayed the high court order on March 4 was not a party to the proceedings before the high court and hence lacks the locus standi to seek its permission to appeal against the high court order.
Hearing a plea by NGO Humane Foundation for People and Animals, the Supreme Court had on March 4 stayed the high court order of June 24, 2021. The NGO also sought the court’s permission to file the special leave petition (SLP) challenging the high court order.
Subsequently, an application was filed by Advocate Prerna Singh seeking lifting of the stay. While hearing it, the court was told that the parties to the proceedings before the HC had settled it.
