SC steps in for destitute widows of Vrindavan

| | New Delhi

To give destitute widows of Vrindavan a life of dignity, the Supreme Court on Friday formed a six-member Committee comprising NGOs and a lawyer to study their condition and suggest a working plan for their amelioration by November 30.

The initiative came from a Bench of Justices Madan B Lokur and Deepak Gupta on a set of PILs filed by NGOs and the National Legal Services Authority.

The Bench asked the Committee comprising of Suneeta Dhar of NGO Jagori, Meera Khanna of Guild for Service, activist and lawyer Abha Singhal, advocate Aparajita Singh and a nominee each from NGOs HelpAge India and Sulabh International to explore all options, including widow remarriage to ensure they do not get stereotyped. The bench will monitor progress of this case on October 9.
