New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Monday asked a farmers’ body why it needed to protest on the streets against the three farm laws when they had already been challenged in court.

The court pointed out that the new farm laws had already been stayed and asked what the farmers were protesting against.

The court was hearing a petition by the Kisan Mahapanchayat seeking permission to protest peacefully against the farm laws at Jantar Mantar in Delhi.

While hearing the matter earlier on October 1, the Supreme Court had lashed out at the group saying they had “strangulated the entire capital (Delhi)”. It had asked them to pursue the matter in court instead of protesting on the streets.

The matter has been posted for hearing on October 21.

When the Lakhimpur Kheri incident in Uttar Pradesh was mentioned, the bench of justices AM Khanwilkar and CT Ravikumar said that nobody takes responsibility when such incidents take place.

At least four farmers were killed in the Lakhimpur Kheri violence that erupted on Sunday afternoon when a jeep allegedly ran over farmers who were protesting against the farm laws.
