The Supreme Court on Monday refused to entertain petitions relating to the controversy of Dera Sacha Sauda saying the Punjab and Haryana High Court was already monitoring the matter.


A Bench comprising Justice Arijit Pasayat and Justice DK Jain said since the High Court is already monitoring the matter, we are not inclined to interfere into it.

Following this order, the petitioners preferred to withdraw the petitions.

The petition filed by Dera Sacha Sauda had sought protection of their properties against an ultimatum given by the Akal Takht to vacate them and stop their activities across the country.

The apex court also declined to entertain a Public Interest Litigation filed by advocate Harvinder Kaur seeking protection to the lives and properties of both Sikhs and followers of the Dera Sacha Sauda cult.
