Share on:


The Supreme Court on Tuesday dismissed a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) seeking judicial inquiry under the chairmanship of a former justice of India to analyze the recent communal violence during the Ram Navami-Hanuman Jayanti celebrations.

A bench headed by Justice L Nageswara Rao dismissed the plea asking the lawyer to not evoke reliefs which can not be granted by the court.

As advocate Vishal Tiwari, who also filed the plea, submitted that matters is alarming and only a one-sided investigation was happening, Justice Rao said, "You want an inquiry to be headed by a former judge of India? Is anybody free? know. 

What reasonably relief is that this... Don't enkindle such reliefs which cannot be granted by this court. Dismissed."

The plea sought directions to carry an inquiry into the clashes that befell in Rajasthan, Delhi, Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat during Ram Navami and Hanuman Jayanti.

The PIL sought directions to line up the same committee to treat the arbitrary action of 'Bulldozer Justice' in Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat and province.
