The apex court rejected the plea, stating that the grounds cited by women for their eviction are 'absurd, illogical and unrealistic.'

The Delhi Commission for Women had last month issued notices to Department of Women and Child Development, Delhi Police, Directorate of Prosecution and Department of Health and Family Welfare to ascertain the status of implementation of the decisions taken by the state level coordination committee on combating trafficking that was convened under the chairmanship of the Chief Secretary of Delhi Government.
