Pavement killings: HC asks for status report

The Gauhati High Court has asked the Assam government to submit status report on the serial killing of pavement dwellers by March 9.

The Court directive came up as a division bench of Justic B N Upadhyay took up for hearing a public interest litigation moved by K N Biswas. The Court has asked the government to sumit the report by March 9. Notably, 6 pavement dwellers were killed by unidentified miscreants during the last two months. Police have yet to get any clue even after the arrest of as many as five youths.
