Anti-terror law should not be "misused for quelling dissent" Supreme Court Judge Justice Dr Dhananjaya Yeshwant Chandrachud said on Monday as he was addressing an event on the legal ties between India and the United States. "Criminal law, including anti-terror legislation, should not be misused for quelling dissent or harassment to citizens. As I noted in my judgement in Arnab Goswami vs the State, our courts must ensure that they continue to remain the first line of defence against the deprivation of liberty of citizens," Justice Chandrachud said.
