NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court on Monday dismissed a plea of Sri Ram Sene chief Pramod Muthalik against a Bombay high court decision upholding an order restraining him and his associates from entering the territory of Goa, saying they indulge in “moral policing”. “The order might have been passed to maintain peace in Goa,” a bench comprising Chief Justice H L Dattu and justice Amitava Roy said while rejecting Muthalik’s plea.
“Goa people will take care of their interest. What are you doing? You people are simply doing moral policing,” it said, adding that “Sri Ram Sene activists barge into a pub and beat up boys and girls.”
Muthalik had moved the apex court challenging the order of the Goa bench of the Bombay high court which on July 2 had refused to interfere with the prohibitory order imposed on him and his associates by the state police.
