Delhi: High Court declines plea against free Metro ride for women

The Delhi High Court on Tuesday dismissed a plea challenging the Delhi government's proposal to make Metro ride free for women.

A Division Bench presided by Chief Justice D.N. Patel and Justice C. Harishankar also imposed a cost of Rs 10,000 on petitioner Bipin Bihari Singh because there was no substance in the petition. 

The plea alleged that the proposed decision of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government was "arbitrary" and "discriminatory".

The plea sought the court's direction to the Delhi government not to take any step to make the Delhi Metro ride free only for women.
