Supreme Court today refused to relax the ban on the sale of firecrackers in Delhi NCR and has directed Delhi Police to implement its order banning the sale of firecrackers.

Last week when the Supreme Court of India banned the sale of cracker in the Delhi-NCR until November 1, "Hum Hain Rahi Pyar Ke" actress got trolled for hailing "Delhi Supreme Court".Juhi Chawla wrote on Twitter, "Brilliant move by Delhi supreme Court, firecrackers banned till November 1!"

The top court was hearing the plea of a group of traders seeking modification of the October 9 order banning sale of crackers for this Diwali which will continue till November 1.

Ramdev also launched an attack on senior Congress leader Shashi Tharoor for supporting court's ban on firecrackers and said, "an intelligent man like Tharoor must not talk like this". The Supreme Court bench proceeded by the Justice AK Sikri, while re-establishing the command said, "We must see at least in one Deepavali the effect of a cracker-free celebration".

Tybura, 31, is on a three-fight win streak, decisioning Andrei Arlovski in his last bout at UFC Fight Night 111 in June. Lewis was replaced by Walt Harris , who Werdum stopped in the first round via submission.


Last month, the court provisionally suspended the interdict and allowed the sale of fire crackers, saying that a complete ban would be considered as an "extreme step", and a "graded advancement" was required to deal with pollution.

"Diwali has been celebrated for hundreds of years. Do not politicise or give a communal angle to the ban", the court said. A bench of Justices A K Sikri and Ashok Bhushan said that relaxing the ban order "would be against the very spirit" of the verdict passed by the top court. "They can burn them from 6 pm to 10 pm on October 19", he said.
