SC quashes plea seeking prevention of extra-judicial killings in India

India Blooms News Service | @indiablooms | 14 Oct 2020, 07:57 pm

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.''
