Hathras Stampede Tragedy Porbe – Chief Justice Chandrachud Directs Listing of PIL

Chief Justice of India Chandrachud has directed the plea for investigation into the Hathras stampede to be listed

The Public Interest Litigation (PIL) requests the formation of a five-member expert committee overseen by a retired Supreme Court judge to conduct the investigation.

Vishal Tiwari, a lawyer, filed a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) in the Supreme Court on July 3, seeking a court-monitored probe and compensation for the victims of the Hathras stampede. On Tuesday, Tiwari appeared before Chief Justice D Y Chandrachud’s bench and urged for an expedited hearing of the matter.

Chief Justice Chandrachud acknowledged Tiwari’s plea and assured him that the case had already been listed for hearing soon. However, no specific date for the hearing was fixed during the mention.

The PIL filed by Tiwari calls for several directives from the Supreme Court, including the immediate formation of a five-member expert committee supervised by a retired Supreme Court judge to investigate the incident. It also seeks adequate compensation for the victims and a court-monitored probe to hold accountable those responsible for the negligence that led to the stampede.

Additionally, the plea urges the Supreme Court to instruct the State of Uttar Pradesh to submit a status report on the incident and take legal action against individuals, authorities, and officials found negligent in their duties.

In the tragic incident in Hathras, Uttar Pradesh, 121 people lost their lives in a stampede. The incident occurred during a religious gathering, leading to widespread concern and calls for accountability.

The Hathras stampede has sparked significant legal action and public outcry, prompting the Supreme Court to take cognizance of the matter through a PIL filed by Vishal Tiwari. As the case progresses, attention remains focused on ensuring justice and accountability for the victims and their families.
