New law to deal with mob lynching

New Delhi :
Condemning the mob lynching incidents across the country, Supreme Count asked the government and Parliament to create law against lynching. Criticising government for its failure to stop mob lynching incidents, Supreme Court said the onus lies on both the Centre and State governments to check these incidents and create law against lynching.
“The State is duty-bound to ensure law and order and to prevent mobocracy,” Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra ordered while hearing a case against cow vigilantism. Court said mobocracy can’t be allowed and has asked the Centre and States to file compliance report on the issue.
“No citizen can take law into their hands. In case of fear and anarchy, the state has to act positively. Violence can’t be allowed,” Supreme Court said. Supreme Court has fixed the matter for further hearing on August 28.
