Two interlocutors reach Shaheen Bagh, hope for fruitful talks

Supreme Court-appointed interlocutors and senior lawyers Sanjay Hegde and Sadhana Ramachandran

New Delhi: To find a solution for the ongoing Shaheen Bagh protest, two of three Supreme Court-appointed interlocutors on Wednesday reached Shaheen Bagh to talk to the protestors out on the streets for more than a month against the new citizenship law (CAA).

Former Chief Information Commissioner Wajahat Habibullah could not make it, while senior lawyers Sanjay Hegde and Sadhna Ramachandran, appointed by the Supreme Court to speak to the protesters, are participating in the dialogue.

Speaking to media before addressing protestors, Hegde hoped for a fruitful interaction with the protestors as he said, "We hope the talks will be successful."

The interlocutors have been assigned to hold talks with people protesting at Delhi's Shaheen Bagh area over CAA, and to convince them to shift their sit-in to an alternative site.

The apex court has fixed the matter for further hearing on February 24.
