Supreme Court rejects mercy killing of Aruna Shanbaug

The euthanasia petition for Aruna Shanbaug has been rejected by the Supreme Court on Monday.

Aruna Shanbaug was tied around the neck by a dog chain and sexually assaulted by Sohanlal Walmiki on Nov 27, 1973. As the oxygen supply to her brain was cut off, she ended in a vegetative state. Ever since all she can do is smile, cry or scream, but not necessarily in response to a emotional or external stimuli.

In its order today, the Supreme Court said “”We agree with senior counsel T R Andhyarujina (who assisted the court in the matter) that passive euthanasia should be permitted in our country in certain situations, and we disagree with Attorney General (G E Vahanvati) that it should never be permitted”.
