The Supreme Court has asked the Delhi Police to respond to Matrix Cellular’s request for the release of an oxygen concentrator that had been confiscated

On Friday, the Supreme Court delayed a case filed by Matrix Cellular Ltd against a Delhi High Court ruling ordering the immediate release of oxygen concentrators seized by the Delhi Police.

A bench led by Justice Nariman has also given Delhi Police three weeks to file a reply affidavit in response to ASG Raju’s motion. “The counter will take 3 weeks. One week for rebuttal. On a non-miscellaneous day, make a list.” The bench remarked.

The Delhi Police then confiscated Matrix Cellular’s oxygen concentrator, citing the fact that it was “discovered under questionable circumstances.”

Three weeks after hearing the submissions made by senior attorney Mukul Rohatgi standing for the petitioner, a division bench of Justice RF Nariman, Justice BR Gavai, and Justice Kimi Joseph issued the notice on June 29.

Matrix Cellular claimed in its appeal that, while the High Court order is likely to agree that the investigation was preliminary, the disparaging order goes on to make a broad and unwarranted statement about the petitioner.
