Delhi High court sends notice to AAP MLA Imran Hussain for oxygen hoarding
The Delhi High Court on Friday issued notice to Aam Aadmi Party legislator Imran Hussain in a plea alleging hoarding of oxygen cylinders at his office and directed him to remain present in the hearing on Monday after a lawyer, in an application, alleged that Hussain has been hoarding oxygen cylinders and making “arbitrary distribution” of them.
While directing Hussain to file a reply to the application and issuing notice to the Delhi government, the division bench of Justices Vipin Sanghi and Rekha Palli said it needs to be first found from where Hussain is procuring the oxygen cylinders.
Delhi HC issues notice to Imran Hussain on the petition concerning alleged illegal hoarding of oxygen cylinders. High Court says Imran Hussain will remain present in the court tomorrow.

“Supposing he is not getting it from re-fillers in Delhi, supposing he has independent arrangement from some supplier in Rajasthan, Faridabad, or wherever. If he is getting it from there and he is giving it to some people in need in his constituency, then you cannot have a grievance because then he is only augmenting supply to Delhi. Even gurdwaras are doing it,” said the court.
The Court also observed that if Hussain was “not eating away from the allocated” quantity of oxygen to Delhi, there was no reason to raise an alarm.
“First we have to see where is he getting it from.. he may be getting from Faridabad (on his own)..you can’t really have a problem. Even Gurudwaras are doing it,” the Court said.
