Dahi handi fest: Maha Govt moves SC on height of human pyramids

Mumbai (Maharashtra), Aug 3 : The Maharashtra Government on Wednesday moved the Supreme Court to get a clarification regarding the height of human pyramids for the Dahi Handi celebrations in the state.

The apex court is likely to hear the petition next week. Last week, the Bombay High Court pulled up the Maharashtra Government for its failure to obtain clarification from the apex court in this regard.

Hearing a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) last month, the High Court had e directed the Maharashtra Government to approach the apex court on its order on the height of human pyramids.

The Bombay High Court had on August 11, 2014, ordered that the height of human pyramids should not exceed 20 feet and that children below the age of 18 years should not be allowed to participate in Dahi Handi functions.
