Senior advocate Arvind Datar submitted that unless the court intervened, if the government invalidated the Permanent Account Number (PAN) card if it was not linked to the Aadhaar card, then an individual would be crippled.

Additional Solicitor General (ASG) Tushar Mehta, representing the Union on Thursday informed a constitution bench that it was wedded to an "individual's freedom of choice" though it was willing to debate the finer points of law pertaining to the right to privacy since the same is already under consideration by another Bench of the Court in the Aadhaar matter.

Taking suo moto cognisance of a media report about a 19-year-old mute and hearing impaired woman going missing at the Adarsh Nagar Metro station, the Delhi High court slammed the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) and the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) on Wednesday. Last Friday, the girl, her mother, and her sister were to get down from the Metro at the Jahangirpuri station but she couldn't and was separated from her family. CISF sources said she was later seen coming out of the next Metro station, Adarsh Nagar, in a CCTV footage. She was seen exiting through the gates without a token but nobody stopped her because there was no guard deployed at the exit gate."How could a girl, who did not have a token, leave the Metro premises?

On its part, the CISF spokesperson said the force had written to the Ministry of Home Affairs last ...
