The Supreme Court on Friday asked the Chief Secretaries of 22 states to file compliance reports in pursuance of its order on laying down a mechanism to sternly deal with cow vigilante groups, saying "nobody can wash off their hands".

The division bench headed by CJI Dipak Misra also mentioned that victims of cow vigilance violence needs to be compensated by the respective states. " We do not have to say that. All states are under an obligation to compensate victims of cow vigilante violence. At the same time, law and order has to have primacy and anyone violating must be dealt with sternly", says SC according to Live Law report.

SC said it after Indira Jaisingh appearing for Tushar Gandhi argued for a compensation scheme for the victims, where the entire process is automated.
