Supreme Court issues notice to AP Government over mob attacks

Vastavam web: Gangs violence, mob attacks and targetted killings are some of the issues against which the Supreme Court has issued orders to the governments to take preventive steps. Interestingly, AP is included in such a national level list for the first time in its recent political history.

Several intellectuals have petitioned the court alleging that some governments are not following its orders for preventing targetted killings and street violence by mobs. In the past, the apex court has ordered that a separate law should be enacted to prevent mob attacks and fast track courts should be formed to handle such cases.
