SC agrees to hear PIL on banning tinted glass
New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Monday sought a
response from the Centre on a petition seeking a ban on the
use of tinted glass in vehicles which is allegedly being
misused by criminals.
A bench headed by Chief Justice SH Kapadia agreed to
hear the PIL which sought the ban said "multiple instances of
rape and molestation have been reported in cars with tinted
glasses and more specifically in the national capital too,
which has the best police allocation as a percentage of
population in the nation".
The petitioner, Abhishekh Goenka, contended criminals
would be easily identified if there is no tinted glass and the
security of the country, along with the right to life of the
citizens, would be guaranteed.
The court, after hearing the contention, issued a
notice to the Centre asking it to file its response by the
next date of hearing.
