Minister of Finance Haseeb Drabu on Thursday cleared a proposal for setting up of four fast-track courts to deal with cases of "extreme violence with women", as per the Supreme Court guidelines.

An official spokesman said during a meeting which was attended by Law secretary Abdul Majid and other officers of the Law and Finance departments, Drabu said two courts each will come up in Kashmir and Jammu divisions to deal with cases of extreme violence against women.

"These courts will go a long way in speedy disposal and delivering justice in cases of extreme violence against women," the finance minister said.

Pertinently, the apex court had ordered setting up of fast-track courts to deal with rape cases following the Nirbhaya incident.
