Supreme Court

A committee led by former judge Gita Mittal, tasked with overseeing the relief and rehabilitation of victims of violence in Manipur, submitted three crucial reports to the Supreme Court on Monday. 

These reports shed light on various pressing issues, including the urgent need to enhance the compensation scheme for the people affected by the strife in Manipur.

The Supreme Court, headed by Chief Justice D Y Chandrachud and Justices J B Pardiwala and Manoj Misra, has announced that it will issue orders on Friday to enable the effective functioning of this three-member panel. 

The court also instructed that copies of the three reports be distributed to all concerned lawyers and directed advocate Vrinda Grover, representing one of the victims, to gather suggestions for the committee's consideration.

The reports submitted by Justice Mittal's committee highlight the necessity to re-issue essential documents and upgrade the Manipur victim compensation scheme, aligning it with the National Legal Services Authority policy. The panel also recommended the appointment of an expert in nodal administration.

Earlier this month, on August 7, the Supreme Court had ordered the formation of a committee comprising three former women high court judges to oversee victim relief, rehabilitation, and compensation. Additionally, former Maharashtra police chief Dattatray Padsalgikar was assigned to monitor the investigation of criminal cases related to the violence.

The committee will be chaired by former Jammu and Kashmir High Court Chief Justice Mittal and includes Justices (retd) Shalini P Joshi, a former Bombay High Court judge, and Asha Menon, an ex-judge of the Delhi High Court.

A committee led by former judge Gita Mittal, tasked with overseeing the relief and rehabilitation of victims of violence in Manipur, submitted three crucial reports to the Supreme Court on Monday.

The court is currently hearing approximately ten petitions related to the escalating violence, some of which seek a court-monitored investigation into the cases and measures for relief and rehabilitation. 

Since the outbreak of ethnic violence on May 3, sparked by a 'Tribal Solidarity March' protesting the Meitei community's demand for Scheduled Tribe status, more than 160 people have lost their lives, with several hundred sustaining injuries.
