The Delhi Minorities Commission (DMC) Thursday issued show cause notices to the mayors and commissioners of the three municipal corporations seeking an explanation on the “order” to shut meat shops during Navratri.
On Monday, South MCD mayor Mukesh Suryan had sent a letter to the civic body commissioner with instructions that all meat shops should be shut. East MCD mayor Shyam Sundar Agarwal had also made a similar appeal.
The Delhi Police Licensing Unit has issued an arms licence to a man who was allegedly shot at during the Northeast Delhi riots two years ago.
Police said the man, Rohit Shukla, who is also a witness in another case, was receiving threats from “unknown parties” and applied for a licence. After due verification from local police and specialised units, police provided the man with one.
