The Supreme Court on Wednesday pulled up the Assam government over inadequacies in the functioning of foreigners tribunals in the state. The court sought details on the matter by 27th of this month. 

During the hearing, the state government told the apex court that 50,000 migrants were declared foreigners by the tribunal in the past 10 years. Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, appearing for the Assam government, said around 900 people were kept in six detention centres of the state.

The three-judge bench headed by Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi said, the state government will have to specify through an affidavit whether the foreigners' tribunals functioning in the state were adequate and how they were functioning.

The apex court was hearing a PIL on the plight of foreigners in detention centres. The plea alleges that they were kept in detention indefinitely just because they were not Indians and were treated as illegal aliens.
