The Supreme Court has received another Public Interest Litigation (PIL) on Monday challenging the Agnipath recruitment scheme for defence forces, stating the scheme to be “illegal and unconstitutional”.

The plea in this regard was filed by Advocate ML Sharma, who sought quashing of the Centre’s notification for the Agnipath scheme.

The PIL sought the quashing of the notification/ press note dated June 14, 2022, issued by the Ministry of Defence being illegal, unconstitutional and void ab-initio and ultra vires to the Constitution of India in the interest of justice.

Filed by a lawyer for direction to set up an SIT to conduct an inquiry into the violent protest that erupted against the Agnipath scheme, the petition further asked for an investigation into the damage caused to the public property including Railways.

The petition had also sought directions for an expert committee to be set up under the chairmanship of a retired Supreme Court judge to examine the Agnipath scheme and its impact on national security and the Army of the nation.
Advocate Vishal Tiwari in his petition said that it would like to bring the Court’s attention to the devastating condition of the country resulting from the Agnipath scheme launched by the Centre through its Ministry of Defence.
