New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Monday said that Khap panchayats' diktat on dress code for women and asking them not to carry mobile is unlawful. A bench of justices Aftab Alam and Ranjana Prakash Desai said such diktats are from the fundamental right to life and asked Khap Panchayats (castebased councils) to file their replies on the issue.
"It (such diktat) also violates the law. How can someone ask others Nike Mid Blazer Black
not to carry mobile?," the bench asked once the Centre told it that such orders are now being passed by them against women.
