Delhi's Deputy Commissioner of Police (southwest) Devendra Arya has apologised for his comments in the social media criticising the Supreme Court's decision to ban sale and production of firecrackers that cause pollution.
Arya, who drew flak for questioning the top court, apologised later for the tweet terming it as "an inadvertent slip".
"It was a momentary inadvertent slip on my part. It does not reflect any opinion/view. I sincerely apologise for this inadvertent slip," he wrote on the micro-blogging site.
On October 23, the apex court in its guidelines said that only firecrackers with reduced emission (improved crackers) and green crackers and Safe Water and Air Sprinklers (SWAS) would be made and sold.
