The Supreme Court on Wednesday expressed anguish over the stand taken by Delhi Police and MCD over the sealing drive in the capital and directed the authorities to go ahead with the action against unauthorised commercial establishments without any further hindrance.

Delhi Police Commissioner KK Paul and MCD Commissioner AK Nigam were present in the court as the apex court summoned them to explain the delay in the resumption of sealing drive even after its order.

A Bench headed by Justice Arijit Pasayat expressed its anguish at the manner in which the order of the court was not carried out in its letter and spirit.

After senior lawyer Ranjit Kumar, who is assisting the court as an amicus curiae in the matter, told the Bench that sealing has started pursuance to Tuesday's order, the Bench said, "we expect that sealing would be carried out without any grievance from any quarter."

Expressing its anger over the delay in resumption of sealing of unauthorised commercial premises in the capital, the Supreme Court on Tuesday pulled up the MCD and the Police and summoned the Police Commissioner and civic body Commissioner before the court.
