Youngest petitioners ever? Three infants approach Supreme Court for fireworks ban

Air Pollution

This could very well be a case of nonchalance and ignorance of residents and rulers of the country driving three helpless persons to the court. Three infants have filed an Article 32 petition seeking a blanket ban on the use of fireworks and seasonal crop burning.

The petitioners are, in fact, the children of three practicing lawyers of the Supreme Court - advocates Gopal Sankaranarayanan, Saurabh Bhasin and Amit Bhandari. Two of the petitioners are 6 months old while one is 14 months old.
