Dahi-Handi fest: SC to take up issue of human pyramids’ height today

NewDelhi, Aug. 8 : The Supreme Court will on Monday take up the issue concerning the height of human pyramids for the Dahi-Handi celebrations in Maharashtra.

The Maharashtra Government moved the apex court on August 3, seeking a clarification regarding the height of human pyramids for the celebrations after the Bombay High Court last week pulled up the 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 directed the state government to approach the apex court on its order on the height of human pyramids.

The high court had on August 11, 2014, ordered that the height of human pyramids should not exceed 20 feet and children below 18 years should not be allowed to participate in the Dahi-Handi function.
