On Wednesday, traders with temporary licenses approached the apex court seeking a relaxation of the ban on the sale of firecrackers in the national capital and the NCR.

A bench headed by Justice AK Sikri said that the November 11, 2016, order suspending the licences "should be given one chance to test itself" to see if there would be a positive effect of this, particularly during Diwali.

The judges also expressed sadness to the fact that a communal twist had been given to its order banning the sale of fireworks in Delhi and adjoining cities. In November 2016, the court had completely stopped the trade of fireworks within the National Capital area, which consist of Delhi and close by areas, following an appeal flagging the frightening growth in smog levels after the celebration. This order has been upheld by the court in its entirety but would be effective post Diwali.

Days after noted author Chetan Bhagat targeted Supreme Court for putting a ban on the sale of Diwali firecrackers in Delhi NCR, now yoga guru Baba Ramdev has said that the verdict is against Hindu sentiments.

An Amber Alert was issued and then later canceled due to lack of new information, for the girl, identified as Sherin Williams. Before he stopped cooperating with police, he told them he left her outside by a tree at 3 a.m .

The apex court in 2005 had also directed that there should be a complete ban on bursting sound-emitting firecrackers between 10 pm and 6 am.

Disagreeing with the SC's ban on crackers sale, renowned author Chetan Bhagat had asked on Monday why such bans are only against Hindu festivals.

"Action will be taken against those who try to sell and purchase firecrackers online", Delhi Police PRO was quoted as saying by ANI on ban on firecrackers' sale in Delhi-NCR. The apex court on Friday said that the ban on sale will continue till further hearing in the case.

Diwali celebrates the victory of good over evil.
