The Delhi high court on Wednesday directed the Delhi Development Authority (DDA) to frame a comprehensive policy to deal with the cases of applicants, who were injured in last Wednesday’s blast when they had come to court to attend hearing of a PIL in the Rohini Housing scheme case.

A bench of chief justice Dipak Misra and justice Sanjiv Khanna directed the housing agency to treat the cases of the blast victims separately.

“The persons who had applied for plots under the Rohini Housing Scheme in 1981 and got injured in the September 7 Delhi high court bomb blast shall be treated separately by DDA,” the bench said.

The order of the bench came on a submission by DDA’s counsel Rajiv Bansal that it had come to the department’s knowledge that some applicants, who had approached the court for hearing of the PIL had received injuries in the blast and that the department is going to consider their cases on an out-of-turn basis.

Meanwhile, petitioner Rahul Gupta, who had received minor injuries in the blast, informed the court that he along with three other applicants had come to the court on the day of the incident.

He also said that the leg of one of the four applicants had to be amputated and DDA should consider his case at the earliest.
