SC quashes plea seeking prevention of extra-judicial killings in India
New Delhi/UNI: The Supreme Court on Tuesday refused to entertain a petition, seeking to prevent extra-judicial killings in the country.
"We don't find any ground. We refuse to entertain the petition," a bench of the Apex Court, headed by Chief Justice (CJI) Sharad Arvind Bobde, observed.
''What should we do to stop extra-judicial killings? We agree it should be prevented, but how can we stop this?,'' the CJI-led bench said.
Senior advocate Jitendra Sharma, appearing for the petitioner, said, ''I am not saying the accused should not be handcuffed, but a request needs to be made before the Magistrate for it.''
To this, the CJI said, ''Some prisoners are dangerous and they need to be handcuffed.''
