The Supreme Court condemned lynching incidents and recommended to Parliament to enact a separate law to punish offenders participating in lynching.It also said that horrendous acts of mobocracy cannot be tolerated and cannot be allowed to become a new norm. "It has to be curbed with an iron hand… no citizen can take law into his hands or become a law on to himself," said the top court. Earlier this month, the SC said that mob lynching is a crime no matter what the motive is and added that it is a law and order issue that is the responsibility of state governments, reported news agencies.
