A petition was moves in the Delhi High court on Tuesday after the Delhi Police seeking direction against the misprint in the recent advisory issued by the Delhi Police regarding Independence Day.

The plea was mentioned before a division bench presided by Chief Justice DN Patel and Justice C Harishankar. The matter has been listed for Wednesday.
