The government does not support any kind of vigilantism in any state, the Supreme Court was told today as a petition against mob violence in the name of cow protection was heard. The centre also said: "No vigilante group has any place in the country under law." 

 The court had earlier issued notice to six states, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Gujarat, Jharkhand, Maharashtra and Karnataka. 

The Supreme Court asked the centre to file a reply on the petition and said both the Centre and states should assist the court in removing violent content from social media by cow vigilante groups. 

 The Gujarat government told the top court that it doesn't support cow vigilante groups, referring to the flogging of Dalit youth in Una town last year. 

 There have been a series of mob attacks recently in the name of cow protection, which prompted a tough message from Prime Minister Narendra Modi last month.

 "Killing people in the name of Gau Bhakti is not acceptable. No person in this nation has the right to take the law in his or her own hands in this country," he said. 

 There were protests in various parts of the country after 15-year-old Junaid Khan was stabbed to death on a train in Haryana by a mob after an argument over train seats. 

The teen, his brother and his friends were called 'beef-eaters' by the attackers. A man was killed in Jharkhand for allegedly carrying beef and his van was set on fire.
