SC DIRECTS CENTRE, STATE TO TRANSFER ASSAM NRC COORDINATOR PRATEEK HAJELA TO MP
GUWAHATI: 18th OCTOBER 2019
The Supreme Court on Friday directed the centre and the State government to transfer Assam National Register of Citizens (NRC) Coordinator Prateek Hajela to Madhya Pradesh.
The direction comes apparently on account of threat perceptions to Hajela.
A Special bench comprising Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justices S A Bobde and R F Nariman ordered inter-cadre transfer of Hajela on deputation.
Hajela had overseen the manmoth exercise of finalization and Publication of Assam NRC.
