The Supreme Court issued notice to the Centre on a PIL seeking a complete ban on the practice of female genital mutilation or khatna , and demanding that it be declared as a cognizable, non-compoundable and non-bailable offence.

The Petition, filed by Advocate Sunita Tiwari, contends that the practice of khatna, as performed on every girl child within the Dawoodi Bohra religious community, does not have any reference in the Quran and is carried out without any medical reason.
