'Will ask Centre if you can't do it': HC orders Delhi Govt to take over major oxygen refilling unit

The court observed that the case involving Seth Air, the oxygen supplier accused of black marketing, reflected the Delhi government's overall mishandling of the oxygen supplies to the hospitals.

April 27, 2021 / 07:03 PM IST

The Delhi High Court expressed lack of confidence in the Arvind Kejriwal-led government while ordering it to take over a major oxygen cylinder refilling unit in the national capital. If the Delhi government is unable to manage, the court would ask the Centre to take over, the bench headed by Justice Vipin Sanghi and Justice Rekha Palli reportedly said on April 27.

The oxygen refilling plant, Seth Air, drew the court's wrath after it was accused of not supplying liquid oxygen to Maharaja Agrasen Hospital.

"It's evident that Seth Air is diverting supplies and probably selling in black market," news agency ANI quoted the bench as saying.

The HC subsequently ordered the Delhi government to take over the plant. While issuing the order, the court also rebuked the Kejriwal government.
