A bench comprising Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justices AM Khanwilkar and D Y Chandrachud considered the submission of senior advocate Colin Gonsalves that conditions at the camps are unhygienic and "filthiest to say the least".
The senior lawyer, appearing for the petitioner Zaffar Ullah, said the Centre and states like Haryana, Rajasthan and Jammu and Kashmir should be asked to provide better hygienic facilities at these camps.
The plea alleged that poor and unhygienic conditions at these camps have led to several deaths recently.
