In a significant development, the Delhi High Court has sought a response from the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) concerning the unauthorized operation of horse-drawn carts, known as 'tongas,' in the national capital.

The court reviewed an application put forth by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), which contends that the MCD has not enforced its decision to phase out these tongas and support their owners' rehabilitation.

A bench consisting of Acting Chief Justice Manmohan and Justice Manmeet PS Arora has issued a notice to the MCD, scheduling the next hearing for August 7 to discuss the main issues.
