Reportedly, the diktat was issued to seek revenge for their brother’s action of eloping with a married girl from the Jat community.

The 23-year-old Dalit girl has now moved the Supreme Court seeking protection for herself and her family.

The girl reportedly in her complaint, alleged that the Jat community held a khap panchayat where the diktat was issued.

She also claimed that her house was ransacked and taken over by the Jat community following which her family moved to Delhi.

SC on Tuesday issued notice to the state government seeking response within two weeks.
