While hearing a petition against the protest at New Delhi's Shaheen Bagh, the three mediators named by the Supreme Court came down to work today. They reached Shaheen Bagh to talk to protesters and convince them to hold the agitation at an alternative site. The protest against the CAA at the south Delhi locality is going on for more than two months, with protesters demanding the government should scrap the law. The Supreme Court had on Monday appointed senior lawyers Sanjay Hegde and Sadhna Ramachandran to go and talk to the protesters. The court had also asked the lawyers to speak to former Information Commissioner Wajahat Habibullah about assisting them.
