Chief Justice SA Bobde said that the petitioner had not done any research in this regard. The petitioner said that law and order in UP is bad. Statistics from the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) also show that the number of criminal cases against women are more in Uttar Pradesh.

A PIL was filed in the Supreme Court seeking imposition of President's rule in UP, which was rejected by the court. Chief Justice SA Bobde said that the petitioner had not done any research in this regard. The petitioner said that law and order in UP is bad. Statistics from the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) also show that criminal cases against women are more in Uttar Pradesh. Lawyer CR Jayasukin, who hails from Tamil Nadu, filed a petition in the Supreme Court. Citing the Hathras case in this petition, it was said that fundamental rights are being violated in UP, so President's rule should be imposed.

Court said - If you argue more then you will impose heavy penalty

The Supreme Court, being angry during the hearing, told the petitioner that if he argues more, he will impose heavy penalty. CR Jayasukin had said in his petition that there was outrage across the country over the alleged rape and murder of the woman in Hathras. Demonstrations have been held in many places in the country. The 20-year-old girl, who was a victim of gang-rape in Hathras, died on September 29, 2020 at Safdarjung Hospital in Delhi. This incident shook the entire nation. This incident, which crossed the limits of cruelty, took place on 14 September in Hathras, Uttar Pradesh.

High court took cognizance of the gang rape case in Hathras

The Allahabad High Court had taken suo motu cognizance of this matter. The Lucknow bench of the High Court held that a cruelty perpetrators showed with the victim and what happened after that, if true, is like sprinkling salt on their wounds rather than relieving the grief of their family. The dead body should be taken to their home, but it was not done.

The court said that the matter came before us, about which we have taken cognizance. The case is of public importance and public interest as it involves allegations on high officials of the state, resulting in violation of basic human and fundamental rights not only of the deceased victim but also of her family members. Significantly, in the Hathras case, the Supreme Court has also constituted a committee headed by retired judge Justice BS Chauhan to investigate. The investigation of the case was handed over to the CBI.
