The Delhi High Court on Tuesday asked the Centre, the Delhi government and Delhi Police to file a reply on a plea seeking directions to allow Sikhs to carry a 'kripan' (small dagger) and wear a 'kara' (bracelet) in public places.
The DSGMC has sought direction to the authorities to treat the rights of Sikhs to carry kripan as part of their identity.
The plea also sought directions to sensitize the police and security agencies about the religious rights granted under the Constitution to Sikhs.
The court has listed the matter for further hearing on March 27.
