SC directs Centre, state to transfer Assam NRC coordinator Hajela to MP

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 for the maximum period.

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 mammoth exercise of finalisation and publication of Assam NRC.

The final NRC was released on August 31 with 19,06,657 of the total 3,30,27,661 applicants excluded.
