The supreme court bench of Chief justice Dipak Mishra along with Justice AM khanwilkar and Justice DY chandrachud heard a PIL today filed by NGO shakti vahini against the interference of Khap panchayats.

The Chief Justice discerned that khap panchayats cannot question the choice of any adult man or woman to marry anyone of their own choice and out of their free will. 

Senior Advocate Raju ramachandran appeared on behalf of the NGO. The matter has been adjourned for next hearing after three weeks.
