Uttarakhand High Court has ordered strict action against all those who created violence during an agitation in Dehradun by unemployed youth against recruitment examination paper leaks.
It appears that the mob agitating against paper-leak resorted to violence. No matter what the issue, it cannot be used as an excuse to resort to violence, destroy public property or create public nuisance, a division bench of the High Court comprising Chief Justice Vipin Sanghi and Justice Alok Kumar Verma observed.
The petitioner has a fundamental right to protest in a peaceful manner after obtaining proper permission from the administration. Therefore, we reject the demand for action against the police. We direct the government to take appropriate and strict action against all those involved in violence or arson, it said.
