SC slams Maharashtra on dance bar issue

Sharing is caring!

Making it clear that the judgement on dance bars in Maharashtra will not be reviewed, the Supreme Court on Wednesday slammed the state government for its efforts to beam dance bar shows to local police stations though CCTVs.A bench of Justices Dipak Misra and Shiva Kirit Singh said such a condition for grant of licence impinged upon not only individual’s fundamental right of privacy, but also to carry out a profession.It said such a condition has been imposed by the state despite apex court judgment in 2014 holding as “unconstitutional” the state’s decision to close down all dance bars.
