New Delhi, Jan 23 (PTI) Despite safeguards against the arbitrary use of emergency provisions, it is critical that society and the body polity remain cautious of taking the same "unfortunate road" again as it did in 1975, Supreme Court judge Justice S K Kaul said on Saturday.

Justice Kaul further said the threat that looms large across the globe "was the probability of triggering emergency-like situations in de-facto manner without taking aid of emergency provisions explicitly".
