PIL Filed in Jharkhand High Court For Compliance Of SC Directive In Lynching Cases

An activist and former Indian Administrative Service (IAS) officer Harsh Mander has filed a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) at the Jharkhand High Court for the compliance of Supreme Court orders given in Tahseen Poonawala versus Union of India. In 2018, on the petition of social activist Tahseen Poonawala, the Apex Court had issued directives to state governments to curb the menace of mob lynching in India.
However, this did not curb the lynching menace and among all Indian states, Jharkhand remains to be the worst affected. On the night of June 17, Tabrez Ansari, a resident of Kharsawan district, was mercilessly beaten by a mob on the allegation of theft. Tabrez succumbed to injuries on June 22. In April, one Prakash Lakra, was lynched in Gumla on the allegation of skinning a cow.
Tabrez and Prakash happen to be first two mob lynching victims in 2019. In the past three years, a total of 18 have lost their lives because of mob lynching in Jharkhand.
Now Harsh Mander, who has travelled to many states of India and met the families of mob lynching victims, has filed a PIL seeking compliance of the Supreme Court directive in connection with mob lynching cases. It includes – preparing a lynching or mob violence victim compensation scheme in the light of the provisions of section 357A of CrPC and in the said scheme for computation of compensation. The state should give due regard to the nature of the bodily and psychological injury and loss of earnings among others.
