<p>In response to two allegations made against Kham Khan Suan Hausing in conflict-torn Manipur, the Supreme Court on Monday ordered that no coercive measures be used against him for two weeks.<img decoding=”async” class=”alignnone wp-image-126193″ src=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/08/theindiaprint.com-in-response-to-petitions-made-in-conflict-torn-manipur-the-sc-grants-a-lecturer-at-hyderabad-university-protection-for-two-weeks-download-2023-08-14t173150.510-11zon.jpg” alt=”theindiaprint.com in response to petitions made in conflict torn manipur the sc grants a lecturer at hyderabad university protection for two weeks download 2023 08 14t173150.510 11zon” width=”1222″ height=”915″ srcset=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/08/theindiaprint.com-in-response-to-petitions-made-in-conflict-torn-manipur-the-sc-grants-a-lecturer-at-hyderabad-university-protection-for-two-weeks-download-2023-08-14t173150.510-11zon.jpg 259w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/08/theindiaprint.com-in-response-to-petitions-made-in-conflict-torn-manipur-the-sc-grants-a-lecturer-at-hyderabad-university-protection-for-two-weeks-download-2023-08-14t173150.510-11zon-150×112.jpg 150w” sizes=”(max-width: 1222px) 100vw, 1222px” title=”In response to petitions made in conflict-torn Manipur, the SC grants a lecturer at Hyderabad University protection for two weeks 6″></p>
<p>One of the accusations asserts that he conducted intentional activities meant to inflame religious sentiment in Manipur, while the other claims malpractice in the state’s voter registration process.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>In order to make it easier for Hausing to seek access to the proper court for a remedy, a bench presided over by Chief Justice D Y Chandrachud ruled that “for two weeks from today, no coercive steps be taken against him.”</p>
<p> </p>
<p>The professor was requesting protection from arrest in connection with these charges, and the bench—which also included Justices J B Pardiwala and Manoj Misra—was hearing his appeal.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Hausing’s senior attorney, Anand Grover, who is representing him, said that two cases had been brought against him and that a magisterial court in Imphal had also summoned him in one of the cases.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Grover said that one of the complaints was about an interview he gave to a news outlet, claiming that the situation in Manipur is really severe.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>He claimed that the professor had not spoken and that he required protection in order to pursue the proper redress for his accusations.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>An order issued by a magistrate cannot be immediately challenged before the Supreme Court in a petition under Article 32 of the Constitution, according to Manipur’s Solicitor General Tushar Mehta.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>The Constitution’s Article 32 addresses remedies for enforcing basic rights, and 32 (1) states that the right to petition the Supreme Court in the proper processes for the enforcement of rights granted by this article is protected.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Mehta said that the magisterial court has made a decision about one of the submitted private complaints.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Grover was informed by the court, “You (the petitioner) can pray for anticipatory bail.”</p>
<p> </p>
<p>The senior lawyer said that because of the ethnic unrest in the northeastern area, the petitioner merely requested temporary protection.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>The bench noted that Hausing was the subject of a criminal complaint filed in a Chief Judicial Magistrate’s (CJM) court for alleged offenses punishable under several sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), including 153-A (promoting hostility between groups on the basis of religion, race, place of birth, etc.) and 295-A (deliberate and malicious acts intended to outrage religious feelings of any class by insulting its religion or religious beliefs).</p>
<p> </p>
<p>It was said that the petitioner had received a summons from the magistrate court in the criminal complaint last month.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>The top court said that a different complaint pertains to an investigation into suspected misconduct in the petitioner’s inclusion on the state’s electoral register.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>It said that the petitioner will be free to request the proper relief, including anticipatory bail, before the relevant court.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>A number of petitions about the unrest in Manipur have been filed with the highest court.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>The state is required to discourage mobs from using sexual violence to convey a message of subjugation to the other group, according to a recent statement from the organization that voiced outrage over the way in which women were subjected to serious crimes in the state.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>The three-person committee of ex-high court judges, which included Justice Gita Mittal, a former Chief Justice of the Jammu and Kashmir High Court, Justice Shalini Phansalkar Joshi, a former Judge of the Bombay High Court, and Justice Asha Menon, a former Judge of the Delhi High Court, was also tasked by the apex court with investigating the type of violence against women that has taken place in Manipur since May 4.</p>
