Delhi: Working on the Public Interest Litigation (PIL) an affidavit by the central government and Delhi Police has been filed before the Delhi High Court informing that adequate safety and security measures are put into place for the safety and security of the churches and minority-run institutions in the national capital.

The PIL, filed by advocate Reegan S. Bell, asked authorities to compensate the places of worship that were attacked and to ensure they were restored to their original form.

Highlighting the government's failure to prevent the attacks on Churches, the PIL urged the court to seek an action taken report from the central and Delhi governments and Delhi Police regarding the attacks and efforts made by them to secure these places. It also emphasized the case of December when six churches were vandalised in Delhi but no arrests were made.

A division bench of Chief Justice G. Rohini and Justice Jayant Nath, would hear the case on Wednesday.

The affidavit filed through the central government's counsel Anil Soni further stated all the concerned officers, especially DCPs and SHOs, have been directed to take care of the security of these places. Every church and minority-run schools and educational institutes have been provided round-the-clock security through dedicated deployment.
