A three-judge bench of the apex court, headed by Chief Justice of India (CJI) Dipak Misra, and comprising of Justice A M Khanwilkar and DY Chandrachud, also asked other states to file their affidavits within two weeks with respect to their compliance report on the court's earlier judgment against mob lynching.
On July 17, the apex court had urged the Parliament to consider a new law to prevent such incidents and underscored that violence can't be allowed in the name of vigilantism. The court had also issued a slew of directions to the government asking to provide preventive, remedial and punitive measures to deal with offences like mob violence and cow vigilantism.
