I'd appreciate if someone could explain the detailed procedure and requirements for getting this privilege.

The practice was not "discontinued". Questions can still be squashed but, instead of giving the privilege to all members who reached 500 Kudoz points automatically, now the member has to request to have the squashing capability. The process involves reading about the situations where it is considered correct/incorrect to squash a question, and passing a brief test. Maybe a moderator can elaborate of this further.
