The kangaroo courts across the country have always been in the news for all the wrong reasons. Even Supreme Court had to intervene on the issues pertaining to such courts and their unconscionable forms of punishment. The latest barbaric incident has been reported from Murshidabad district of West Bengal. According to media report, a Kangaroo court had asked a woman to pay fine of Rs 6000 for having an affair. As she failed to pay the amount, the unofficial court ordered her husband to cut off her hair as a punishment.
Officials took notice of the incident. Three persons have been arrested for setting up unofficial court.
