Senior counsel Kapil Sibal also appearing for one of the petitioner told the court that while the perpetrator of violence in the name of protecting vows were on bail, the victims of their violence was facing FIRs and persecution.

After many cases of violence in the name of saving cows came to light, the Supreme Court had on September 6 passed a slew of measures and asked states to appoint a senior police officer in every district as a nodal officer. “The senior police officer shall take prompt action and will ensure vigilante groups and such people are prosecuted with promptitude,” it had said, adding that the nodal officers have to ensure that cow vigilantes did not become a law unto themselves.

Apart from this, the apex court had also asked the states to make sure that highways are patrolled with efficiency as such incidents took place on highways on the pretext that vehicles are carrying beef. Besides Gandhi, Congress leader Tehseen Poonawalla has also filed a similar petition.
