The Supreme Court, in its landmark ruling, has disposed of the petition filed by an NGO against Khap Panchayats. The Apex Court has sought measures against interference of Khap Panchayats in marriages. The top court has made it clear that stated, any assembly which is intended to scuttle a marriage between two consenting adults would be illegal. It is to be mentioned that Khap Panchayats made news after reports of series of honour killings had surfaced. Khaps are caste or community groups, known to hold special local courts that dissolve marriages, dictate dress code, mostly to women.
