Supreme Court dismisses plea seeking the creation of international Covid task force with China, US


New Delhi Sept 6(ILNS): The Supreme Court today dismissed a Petition seeking the creation of an international task force comprising members from China.

The Division Bench comprising of Justice DY Chandrachud, Justice Vikram Nath, and Justice Hima Kohli heard a petition filed by Abhinav Bharat Congress which had also sought for apprising the Top Court of the steps to be taken for preventing the third wave.

The Petitioner had filed a petition seeking a direction to the Center to set up an international task force of experts to find out the reasons for the deaths in India from April to June this year.  

The Petition submitted that the monumental tragedy is not yet over. We are all forced to live under serious restrictions awaiting the next attack- the third wave. The origins of the Wuhan virus that led to the pandemic of COVID is a subject matter of international investigation. Origins of the Delta Variant of the Wuhan virus that seems to have killed 3.9 million Indians in less than three months; are today not known. The variant first found in India is now the dominant virus strain in the world bringing opprobrium upon India in the eyes of the world.

The Petition further submitted that an International Task Force consisting of national and international experts (including those from China) and reporting to the Apex Court will have the credibility that a team constituted by the Union will not have. The very act of determination of trust of SARS Cov-3 will be an additional step i.e in addition to vaccination and COVID appropriate norms, in preventing the third wave and further loss of human life. In any case, the determination of the truth behind the death of 3,900,000 Indians in less than three months is by itself a worthwhile cause.

It was contended that India owed to itself and to the world to investigate and establish the facts behind an event that appears to have killed 3,900,000 Indians in less than three months.

The Bench said that these are not the issue of a writ under Article 32.  He said that we have no jurisdiction over China or American citizens. The Court said that the demand you have made is not within the jurisdiction of the Court to fulfill it.

The Petitioner said to give a representation in this matter to the government. On this, the Court said that you can put this matter in front of the government./ILNS/AP/SNG
