The Supreme Court on Tuesday termed as ‘absolutely illegal’ any attack by khap panchayats or associations against an adult man and woman opting for inter-caste marriage. A three-judge bench of the apex court headed by Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra, comprising of Justices A M Khanwilkar and D Y Chandrachud, observed that an adult girl or man can enter into marriage and no society, parents or panchayat can stop them.
The court was hearing a petition against Khap panchayats, where it asserted that if the Centre does not act towards banning them, then the court will step in.
