SC modifies its previous order on dowry Harassment

Supreme Court
The Supreme Court today modified its previous order that provided for setting up of a committee to deal with complaints of dowry harassment. 

The court, while modifying its earlier verdict, said that there is no scope for courts for constitutionally filling up gaps in the penal law. 

Talking to AIR, senior Supreme Court lawyer, Dr. Surat Singh said that the apex court has restored to its earlier position on the issue. 

The Court was hearing a plea filed by an NGO claiming that the otherwise helpful instrument in the hands of victim women has become valueless.
