The Delhi High Court Wednesday said it will hear the appeal of Associated Journals Ltd (AJL), publisher of National Herald newspaper, on January 28 challenging the single judge order asking it to vacate its premises in New Delhi.

A bench headed by Chief Justice Rajendra Menon cited health issues and asked if the matter could be heard some other day.

Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, representing the Centre, and senior advocate Abhishek Manu Singhvi, appearing for AJL, agreed that the matter be heard some other day. The Chief Justice said he has to undergo a surgery and can take up the matter any day after January 24.
