The Chief Justice of India on Wednesday directed the Supreme Court's registry to immediately communicate the status quo order to the authorities of the North Delhi Municipal Coproration with respect to the demolition drive at riots-hit Jahangirpuri area.

CJI NV Ramana issued this direction to the Secretary General of the Supreme Court after Senior Advocate Dushyant Dave mentioned that the demolition drive using bulldozers was going on despite the status quo order passed by the Court today morning.

"They say order is not communicated. Please communicate, ask secretary General", Dave urged the CJI. "It was widely reported in media immediately. This is not right! We are in rule of law society", Dave added.

The CJI directed the court staff to take down the contact numbers of the NDMC Mayor, Commissioner and Delhi Police Commissioner from Dave.

"Communicate it(the order) through Secretary General or Registrar General immediately", CJI said.

"It'll be too late otherwise", Dave said.

"We are communicating", CJI assured.

"I'm feeling sad, despite world knowing that this court passed orders they are not stopping. It sends a wrong message", Dave expressed anguish.

What happened in morning ?

The Supreme Court on Wednesday ordered status-quo on the demoliton drive started by the North Delhi Municipal Corporation against alleged encroachers in the Jahangirpuri area, where communal riots took place last week.

A bench led by the Chief Justice of India ordered status quo on a mentioning made by Senior Advoate Dushyant Dave.

"Something serious requires your immediate intervention. This is about a completely unconstitutional and illegal demolition which has been ordered in Jahangirpuri area, where riots took place last week. No notice has been served. There is a provision for appeal under the Municiapl Corporation Act. We have filed a provisional application(before SC). It was supposed to start at 2PM but they started the demolition today morning at 9 AM knowing that we will mention", Dave submitted.

"Maintain status quo. List before appropriate bench tomorrow", the CJI ordered.

The petition was filed by Islamic clerics' body Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind.
