SC notifies Centre on new norms to protect NE people

The Supreme Court on Friday issued notice to the Centre and all states on a PIL seeking its direction to them to frame guideline to protect the people from north eastern states in various parts of the country against alleged racial discrimination. A bench of chief justice P Sathasivam and Justice Ranjan Gogoi sought response from the authorities within four weeks on the issue.

The apex court initially expressed reluctance to entertain the plea on the ground that the Delhi high court is hearing a similar petition but it agreed to examine the issue after the petitioners pleaded that racial discrimination is prevalent across the country and the matter can be addressed by the highest court. The petition was filed in the wake of Nido Tania’s death.
