SC directions to States on ‘Khap Panchayats or Katta Panchayats" – Suspend DM/Collector, SSP/SPs


Supreme Court gave these directions on 19/4/2011 in Criminal Appeal No.958 of 2011

Directions are given that if barbaric incidents happen and if it is found that

1) District Magistrate/ or Collector or SSP or SP had been previously informed but they have failed to prevent incident,

2) Or if they have failed to apprehend culprits immediately, 

They be suspended.

These directions are found in para 16/17 of judgement reported also in 2011(4) SCALE page 756 on page 761.

A complainant can go to High Court to see that directions are obeyed by State.
