A bench comprising Justices AM Khanwikar, Abhay S Oka, and CT Ravikumar warned, “If these issues take place, the chief secretary will be asked to appear.” The SC asked the state’s Chief Secretary to make sure that “no hate speeches are made” at the event to be held in Roorkee tomorrow.

Responding to this, the counsel said, “Please have trust and faith in us.” The bench replied, “Trust is for everyone, but things are different on the ground.”
