EC responsible for spread of Covid-19, should probably be booked for murder: Madras HC

  • The Madras High Court on Monday stated that the Election Commission of India was 'singularly' responsible for the spread of Covid-19 in India and murder charges should probably be filed against it for its negligence and irresponsible behaviour.

  • The Bench of Chief Justice Sanjib Banerjee and Justice Senthilkumar Ramamoorthy blamed EC of not having stopped the election rallies in different states from violating the Covid protocols. It further added that the EC did not take any action against parties violating the norms.

  • The next hearing is on April 30 where the court will deliberate on the counting of votes on May 2 as it may act as a further catalyst in the spread.
