At the outset, the Court noted that the way during which the incident happened which the petitioners also are the accused within the brutal murder of a young girl, goes to show that their activities were of such a nature which definitely disturb the tempo of society and public tranquility.

Therefore, the court held that the instances of petitioners’ activities, enumerated within the grounds of detention, clearly showed that the activities covered a good field and fall within the contours of the concept of “public order”and the Detaining Authority was justified in law in passing the impugned order of detention as its confirmation order against the petitioners.
