Rajasthan to table bill against honour killing, khap panchayats
By Dna 30-Jul-2019
The bill proposing tough measures against honour killing is expected to be tabled in the Rajasthan Assembly on Tuesday. The bill may propose imprisonment for a period between six months and five years, along with fine worth Rs 1 lakh.
The bill will further propose laws to curb the power of khap panchayats. Notably, the Supreme Court had last year raised concern over failure to control khap panchayats from issuing illegal diktats. Terming the attacks by khaps and other outfits as “illegal”, the top court had questioned why anyone should have a problem with two consenting adults marrying each other.
