SC tells Parliament to pass law against lynching

Tue, Jul 17, 2018, 12:26 PM
Supreme Court (SC) asked Parliament to consider bringing a new law to deal with offences of mob violence and provide deterrent punishment to offenders, amid rising attacks by self-styled cow vigilantes and crowds in the country. The bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra said that a mob or crowds cannot take law into their own hands. Before mobocracy becomes a new norm, Parliament should pass strictures against it and ensure safety of human lives. The bench also passed a slew of directions to provide 'preventive, remedial and punitive measures' to deal with offences like mob violence and cow vigilantism.
