SC seeks explanation from Assam govt on allegation of communal statements by state NRC coordinator

AIR News
The Supreme Court today sought an explanation from the Assam government over the allegation that the state coordinator for NRC was making communal statements.
 
A bench headed by Chief Justice S A Bobde observed that the coordinator should not make such statements and asked the Assam government to explain this. The Court's observation came after senior advocate Kapil Sibal drew the attention to the alleged statement made by the state NRC coordinator, Hitesh Dev Sarma.     
 
Several other petitions have been filed relating to the NRC in Assam and the bench issued notices to the Centre and Assam Govt and sought response within four weeks.

A petition was also heard in which it was stated that around 60 children have been excluded from the NRC but their parents have been granted citizenship through NRC. Attorney General K K Venugopal and Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, appearing for the Centre and the Assam government, said such children will not be separated from their parents.
