SC to hear pleas seeking contempt action against Rajasthan govt in mob lynching case at Alwar
The Supreme Court on Monday agreed to hear the pleas seeking contempt action against the Rajasthan government in the recent mob lynching case at Alwar.
The pleas allege that incidents of mob lynching and vigilantism were taking place despite a verdict by the apex court in this regard.
A bench, headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra, said it would hear the petitions on the 28th of next month.
The petitioners urged that directions be issued to follow the apex court verdict in letter and spirit.
The apex court had, earlier this month, asked Parliament to consider enacting a new law to effectively deal with incidents of mob lynching.(IANS)
