S.L. Foundation Th. Its President v. UOI, WPC 127/2014

This PIL requested the Supreme Court of India to completely curb the unhealthy practice of dedicating minor virgin girls to Uttangi Mala Durga Temple ar Harappanahalli Taluk of Devanagar District, Karnataka where they were then sold to brothels on 13th February every year. This is an outright social injustice, where minor girls are manipulated and sold to brothels for prostitution, in the name of deity pleasing.

The Court was of verdict that such practices must be immediately banned and strong vigilance should be set out on 13th and 14th February every year. The girls would be given counselling and rehabilitation as necessary.

Sabu Steephen v. UOI, WPC 805/2015

This PIL aims to seek approval from the Supreme Court of India for the termination of stray dogs from the streets. The petition contains that the complete eradication of stray dogs will decrease the spread of rabies and also injuries and deaths caused by stray dogs. It quotes a section from Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act which states that destruction of stray dogs in gas chambers is not cruelty. While this petition is still pending, if the judgement comes in favour of the petition the menace caused by stray dogs will come to an end.

Sabu Steephen v. UOI, WPC 149/2017

It was contended that with Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Care and Maintenance of Case Property Animals) Rules, 2017 and with some provisions from PCA (Regulation of Livestock Markets) Rules, 2017, that livestock farmers had to prepare an affidavit when buying or selling their livestock. This was to emphasize that the livestock were not sold for meat. This put severe restriction on the livestock farmers. The PIL petition which sought the removal of these Acts and its provisions was held by the Supreme Court to be enacted.

Sabu Steephen v. UOI, WPC 751/2020

This PIL case is still pending before the Supreme Court of India. It seeks to transfer the stray domestic animals from the streets to a supervised area called “milkman’s colony”, where after these cattle will return to their respective owners. This petition seeks to prevent the road accidents caused by stray domestic animals on the streets.

Sabu Steephen v. UOI, WP(Cr) 319/2021

This landmark judgement has taken an advance step to curb the social evil of dowry practice even though there are existing provisions and Acts to prevent it. The PIL sought to completely eradicate the dowry practice by requesting for the following reliefs:

  1. For the constitution of a Dowry Prohibition Officer in every Government/public     office.
  2. That any dowry or share made must be created only under the woman’s name at   least for the first 7 years and this must be entered in the Register by the   concerned officers.
  3. To add a curriculum in schools about dowry prevention awareness by constituting   a Curriculum Commission and for the requirement of “Special Pre-Marriage   Course” to impart awareness to couples by learnt experts and to have its   certification as a mandatory pre-requisite for marriage registration.
  4. To make it mandatory that “No Dowry Certificate” from the District or State Dowry   Prohibition Officer is necessary for marriage registration, government   employment, etc.
