SC takes up matter of Baghpat khap diktat, family hopes for justice

New Delhi, Sep 15 (ANI): The Supreme Court on Tuesday took the matter of Baghpat khap diktat and gave it proper hearing. The victims' family, which claims to be under stress as no help from UP police and state authorities was provided, was heard at length and the entire matter was put before a panel of judges.

The lawyer said that the SC has directed the state officials, who were also present during hearing, to bring to court all case diaries in which matter was listed and the court will personally examine them. The highest court also gave directions to immediately release the victims' brother and produce him before court for next hearing.

Directions were also given to provide protection to the family. The panchayat had allegedly passed order that girls of the Dalit family be raped after their brother had eloped with a married girl of Jat community.

The man had later on returned to the village after which he was arrested by police in a drug case.
