The Delhi High Court on Wednesday sought a response of the amicus curiae on a status report filed by the Centre about its proposed actions to curb hate crimes and racial discrimination against persons hailing from northeastern region of the country.
“We have filed a detailed action-taken report in pursuance of the findings of the 11-member panel, headed by M P Bezbaruah, on this issue,” the counsel for the Union Home Ministry told a bench comprising Chief Justice G Rohini and Justice Rajiv Sahai Endlaw.
Taking the Home Ministry’s report into the records, the court asked senior advocate Upmanyu Hazarika, who has been appointed the amicus curiae, to respond by filing his suggestions.
“We have dealt with each and every aspect of the findings of the Bezbaruah committee and have come out with the proposed actions,” Additional Solicitor General Sanjay Jain, appearing for Ministry, said.
The court has fixed the matter for further hearing on November 12.
