New Delhi, Dec 7: The Delhi High Court on Wednesday dismissed a plea seeking intervention to help prisoners lodged in various jails here to get their old currency notes exchanged. A division of Chief Justice G. Rohini and Justice Sangita Dhingra Sehgal refused to entertain the PIL which raised the plight of jail inmates hit by demonetisation. The court enquired about the number of parole applications filed to exchange old notes after the demonetisation move. The petitioner did not have the answer to the court’s query and said no such details were provided by the jails. (IANS)
