Judgement of the Supreme Court of India in the matter of Tehseen S. Poonawalla Vs Union of India & Others dated 17/07/2018 regarding cow vigilantism and other incidents of lynching.

Supreme Court emphatically states that it is the duty of the State to ensure that the machinery of law and order functions efficiently and effectively in maintaining peace "so as to preserve our quintessentially secular ethos and pluralistic social fabric in a democratic set-up governed by rule of law". The Apex Court also asked the legislature to create a separate offence for lynching and provide adequate punishment for the same.
