Such violence cannot be allowed to enter the society

Justice Chitkara, in his order, said that looking at the FIR and the facts attached to the case, it shows that the motive of the violence was to gain fame and create material. While ordering the quashing of the case registered against Elvish and his associates, Justice Chitkara said while barring it from doing so in future, it should also be remembered that the legal process should not be taken lightly.
