The state of affairs, be it Covid or non-Covid, is “frightening” as people are “flowing like a river” which could lead to stampede and death of hundreds, the Delhi High Court said on Friday while taking note of overcrowding in Sarojini Nagar market.

The court also issued contempt notice against officials of the New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) for not complying with its earlier orders on the removal of encroachment from the market, including illegal vendors and their goods.
