The apex court bench headed by Chief Justice P Sathasivam said this when PIL petitioner advocate ML Sharma mentioned the matter before the court.

Nagpal was suspended in July ostensibly for breaking down a wall of a mosque, an action the Uttar Pradesh government said could have communal tension.

But the widespread belief -- strengthened by a Samajwadi Party leader's public claim -- is that action was taken against her because she took on a mafia extracting sand illegally from the river bed in Noida.
