States must compensate victims of cow vigilantism

A three-judge bench of the apex court, headed by Chief Justice of India (CJI) Dipak Misra and Justice AM Khanwilkar and DY Chandrachud, said that all states are under an obligation to compensate the victims of cow vigilantism. It had given states a week to comply with the order. The matter is posted for further hearing on October 31.

"Victims are to be compensated".

The Supreme court has ruled that the states must have a scheme wherein victims of cow vigilantes are compensated.

Gujarat, Rajasthan, Jharkhand, Karnataka and Uttar Pradesh have filed their compliance reports today.

On September 6, the court had asked each state to appoint a senior police officer to serve as the nodal officer in each district to ensure that such incidents do not take place.

The apex court was hearing a PIL filed by Tushar Gandhi, great-grandson of Mahatma Gandhi, seeking various reliefs, including a direction to all the governments to take preventive measures against cow vigilantism.

The central government had said that it does not support cow vigilantism and it was for the states to crack down on such self-styled groups.

Cow vigilantes have been responsible for injuries and deaths of several innocent cattle traders and meat shop owners, who were beaten up on mere suspicion of beef trading or cow slaughter.
