Jaipur: Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot on Tuesday said the purpose of introducing bills making honour killing and mob lynching a cognisable, non-bailable offence is to punish such acts of violence and criminal intimidation severely.

"Bill introduced in Rajasthan Assembly today to make honour killing a cognisable, non-bailable and non-compoundable offence with life imprisonment and fine of upto Rs 5 lakh.

In another tweet, he wrote, "There is a provision to appoint a nodal officer to prevent lynchings in the state. Mob lynchings result in loss of livelihood, injuries and death of persons at the hands of mobs. The purpose of the bill is to nip the evil in the bud, and to prevent spreading of hatred or incitement to mob lynching by creating special offences against it."

Today, both the bills were introduced by Parliamentary Affairs Minister Shanti Dhariwal on behalf of the chief minister in Rajasthan Assembly.
