SC to lay norms, terms as 'grave' incidents of rioting, vandalism

NSD Logo
The Supreme Court today termed as grave the rising incidents of rioting and vandalism of properties during protests across the country.   
 
The observation came when Attorney General K K Venugopal told the bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra that riots and protests are happening almost every week in one or other part of the country. 

Mr.Venugopal referred to recent violent incidents involving kanwariyas and also protests on the Maratha reservation in Maharashtra and nationwide violence following the apex court verdict in the SC/ST matter. 

He said that the government has been contemplating an amendment in the existing law to deal with such kind of protests and asked the courts to allow the legislature to change the law suitably.

The apex Court said, it will not wait for the amendment as the situation is grave and rioting and vandalism must stop.

The bench reserved the order on a plea filed by the Kodungallur Film Society seeking enforcement of the apex court's directions passed in 2009 to ensure peaceful protests in the country.

The apex court, in 2007, had taken a serious note of various incidents of large scale destruction of public and private properties in the name of agitations, bandhs and hartals and had initiated suo motu proceedings. The Court had come out with guidelines on the issue in 2009.
