    Attack on couples by khap panchayat illegal: SC


    0 Not allowed!
    • "Adults can get into marriages of their choice and no panchayat, khap, individual, society can question them," the SC said.
    • The SC said that no khap or panchayat can summon such couples and encourage institutionalised atrocities against them.

    The Supreme Court on Tuesday termed as "absolutely illegal" any attack by khap panchayats or associations against an adult man and woman opting for inter-caste marriage.


    The top court added if the government does not enact a law to protect couples opting for inter-caste marriage, the court will evolve a principle and lay down guidelines.



    "Adults can get into marriages of their choice and no panchayat, khap, individual, society can question them," the
    SC said.


    A CJI Dipak Misra-led bench said that no khap or panchayat can summon such couples and encourage institutionalised atrocities against them.

    The Supreme Court on Tuesday made it clear that if an adult man and woman marry, no khap panchayat, individual or society can question them and slammed the Centre for not enacting a law to prevent khap panchayats from taking law into their hands.

    A three-judge bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justices A.M. Khanwilkar and D.Y. Chandrachud orally observed that the attack by khap panchayats opposing such marriages and resorting to ‘honour killings’ was illegal.

    The bench made it clear that if the Centre failed to stop the khap panchayats through legislation, then the court would intervene to put an end to this practice.

    The court asked the Centre to give its response on suggestions earlier given by amicus curiae Raju Ramachandran on ways to prevent harassment and killing of young couples in the name of family honour for marrying inter-caste or intra-clan (gotra).
