The Supreme Court today slapped cost of up to one lakh rupees on seven states for failing to file responses regarding setting up of Human Rights Courts despite its January 2018 direction. The top court imposed a cost of one lakh rupees each on Rajasthan and Uttarakhand while noting that neither have they filed their responses nor their advocates were present in the court during the hearing.

A bench comprising Justices Deepak Gupta and B R Gavai also slapped cost of 50,000 rupees each on Telengana, Uttar Pradesh, Odisha, Meghalaya and Mizoram after it was told that these states have not filed their responses. The bench said these seven states can file their response within four weeks subject to payment of cost.

The top court had on 4th January 2018 directed all the states to file their responses on the issue of setting up of Human Rights Courts as mandated in the Protection of Human Rights Act, 1993 and appointment of special public prosecutors.
