The Apex Court Defines State Sponsored Terrorism

Recently The Supreme Court of India has redefined State Sponsored Terrorism, while disposing Criminal Appeal No.1491 0f 2012, in a matter against State of Jarkhand, that" It is not the duty of the police officers to kill the accused merely because he is a dreaded criminal. Undoubtedly, the police have to arrest the accused and put them up for trial. This court has repeatedly admonished trigger happy police personnel, who liquidate criminals and project the incident as an encounter. Such killings must be deprecated. They are not recognized as legal by our criminal justice administration system. They amount to State sponsored terrorism."
