A lawyers’ body on Wednesday moved the Delhi High Court seeking a direction to the Delhi government to issue a notification to divide the national Capital into nine separate metropolitan areas to deal with criminal cases.

The Dwarka Court Bar Association said Delhi which has already been bifurcated into nine district courts, has not been divided into nine metropolitan areas for dealing with criminal cases. A bench of Acting Chief Justice AK Sikri and Justice Rajiv Sahai Endlaw decided to hear the matter on June 1.
