What kind of state are you Running ? Chief Justice Asked Telangana State Government

“What kind of a State are you running,” Chief Justice of India J.S. Khehar asked the Telangana state government .

A visibly shocked Justice Khehar asked the question in a case in which a man was detained for over 10 months on the suspicion that he stole some sarees from a shop in Hyderabad.

“Have a heart, will you? A person is detained for all this time on the mere suspicion that he stole one or two sarees… and there is not even one credible witness to prove that he committed the theft… What will happen to this country if this is how citizens are treated,” the Chief Justice asked Telangana state counsel.

The Chief Justice, who was sitting on a Bench with Justice N.V. Ramana, said: “Telangana… such a nice State, but look at how you are running it… We will have to pass strictures against you. We have to see that people in this country are not harassed like this again.”
