New Delhi, July. 4 (Udaipur Kiran): The Supreme Court on Thursday refused to accord an urgent hearing to a petition on mob lynching incidents and said it would hear the matter in due course of time.
The plea for an urgent hearing was made in the highest court before a bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi. The petition contended that the apex court’s judgment on the issue of mob lynching in July last year had not been complied with.
The Court had then said that “horrendous acts of mobocracy” cannot be allowed to overrun the law of the land and had issued a slew of guidelines to deal with the cases of mob lynching and cow vigilantism.
