After videos showing vehicles being vandalised by Kanwariyas across northern states went viral on social media, the Supreme Court on Friday directed the police to take strict action against those responsible for erupting violence and breaching laws.


A three-judge bench of the apex court, headed by Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra, and comprising Justices A M Khanwilkar and DY Chandrachud, reiterated an earlier verdict, which stated that videography of every procession should have to be made.


The top court, while citing the 2009 judgement, also said that the organisers were responsible for any violence reported during the procession.
