Supreme Court permits Passive Euthanasia with Riders


ONI Bureau:  In landmark decision, the Supreme Court on Friday gave legal sanction to passive Euthanasia with riders.

The Apex Court said that ‘living will’ be permitted but with the permission from family members of the person who sought passive Euthanasia and also a team of expert doctors who say that the person’s revival is practically impossible as human beings have the right to die with dignity.

The order was passed today by a five-judge Constitution bench including Chief Justice of India (CJI) Dipak Misra. The SC said the relatives of a patient who has not written a ‘living will’ can approach high courts asking for passive euthanasia.
