On 15 May 2020, the Petitioner withdrew a Petition from the Delhi High Court. This was in relation to the release of all members of the Tablighi Jamaat.
The plea filed by Sabiha Quadri stated that:
The confinement of the Members of Tablighi Jamaat in quarantine was for almost 35 days. But, this violated the 14 days quarantine guideline. Meanwhile, this also gives rise to another question. Is the prolonged confinement of these members violative of the Constitution of India?
The plea claimed that a total of 3,288 people from Tablighi Jamaat were in quarantine in various centres. However, only a few had tested positive for COVID-19. Authorities found two members of Tablighi Jamaat starved to death in Sultanpuri Quarantine. As a result, an FIR was lodged for the same. These acts by the respondents and the Delhi Government risked the lives of many people. Moreover, a question arose here that, who exactly is subject to quarantine in these Centre?
The Court informed that the Delhi Government had released 3,300 people of the Jamaat. In other words, they were not infected with the virus COVID-19.
A Bench of Chief Justice D.N Patel and Justice C. Hari Shankar heard the plea told by the Council. Moreover, the Petitioner wished to withdraw the petition. This was because the members of the Tablighi Jamaat were already allowed to go.
Hence, the court allowed the Petitioner Sabiha Quradi to withdraw the plea.
