Vandalising private property to face serious charges

Vandalising private property to face serious charges

Thiruvananthapuram: The Legislative Assembly has passed a bill that proposes severe penalties to those who vandalise private properties in the name of hartals and communal violence.

The Kerala Prevention of Damage to Private Property and Payment of Compensation Ordinance 2019 was promulgated by the assembly on Thursday.

According to the bill, damage to private property in the name of hartals and communal violence, is serious as that of damage to public property.

Private property refers to any property, whether movable or immovable, in the possession of or owned by private individuals, companies or institutions.

The bill has provision to punish the guilty with one to 10 years of imprisonment and fine.

The provisions to get bail are stern. Bail will be granted only after hearing the prosecution side in the case. The accused can get bail if a sum equivalent to 50% of the value of the damaged properties is submitted as a bank guarantee.

The bill was presented by Minister AK Balan on behalf of the Chief Minister.
