Apex court to frame guidelines to protect good Samaritans

The Supreme Court on Friday said it will frame broad guidelines for protection of good Samaritans rendering assistance to accident victims after going through the recommendations of the high-level committee appointed by it.

The Committee, headed by a retired judge of the Delhi high court, will also suggest measures to provide timely help to road mishap victims in view of growing number of such causalities on the highways also.

A bench comprising Chief Justice P Sathasivam and Justice Ranjan Gogoi said the Committee will go through the two writ petitions, one filed by an NGO, Save Life Foundation and another by an individual S Rajaseekaran before giving its final recommendation.

Apex court had in December last year appointed retired judge of the Delhi High Court V S Agrawal to head the committee. Additional Solicitor General Siddharth Luthra said justice Agrawal has opted himself out after submitting the interim report on health ground.
