PIL seeks SC direction during lockdown

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, March 27 - A Public Interest Litigation (PIL) has been filed through e-filing before the Supreme Court of India seeking appropriate directions/guidelines/instructions to the government as well as police authority and common public to regulate the movement of people in the present lockdown situation.

In the PIL filed by lawyer Amit Goyal, it is stated that a specific instruction is the immediate need of the hour as there is news that police beat a person to death in West Bengal when he had gone to buy milk.

The petitioner is represented by Supreme Court lawyer Kaushik Chaudhury who is assisted by Pritam Baruah.

The petition, while seeking appropriate directions, contended that due to circulation of various videos where police are seen beating people and also due to publication of several news items of police beating any member of the public seen outside, it is felt that in the absence of proper instructions and guidelines everyone including the police are clueless as to how to proceed further in this situation.
