Union Law Minister Salman Khurshid has praised the judiciary`s role in the "present contentious society".
The Supreme Court on Monday said it was not for the courts to involve themselves in issues of policy which come under the domain of the government and Parliament.
The Supreme Court has ruled that minor contradictions in the prosecution`s claim can be ignored.
Indian courts have jurisdiction to deal with custodial disputes of minor children even if a foreign court has passed an order in favour of either of the parents, the Supreme Court ruled.
