SC refuses urgent hearing on plea for police reforms
The Supreme Court today refused to accord urgent hearing on a PIL seeking reforms in police force across the country, saying "nobody listens to our orders".
"Sorry. Declined," a bench comprising Chief Justice J S Khehar and Justices D Y Chandrachud and S K Kaul said when the counsel sought urgent hearing of the PIL on the issue.
"Police reforms are going on and on. Nobody listens to our orders," the bench said when Ashwini Kumar Upadhya, lawyer and Delhi BJP spokesperson, insisted on an urgent hearing.
Upadhya, in his plea, has sought directions to states and the Centre to implement massive reforms in the police force including a fixed tenure for senior officers.
