Supreme Court orders govt to provide relief to conflict victims
The Supreme Court (SC) has passed an order asking the government to provide compensation and relief to victims of conflict.
The apex court has asked the government to form a committee by including representatives of the victims and work as per its recommendation.
The court passed the order in response to a writ petition filed by victims demanding relief to over 60,000 who suffered from the conflict and many of whom were displaced.
The order was delivered by a bench comprising judges Balram KC and Tahir Ali Ansari.
The bench has asked the government not to back down from carrying out its duty towards protecting basic human rights.
