In a surprise move, the Supreme Court today ordered the inter-cadre transfer of Assam NRC Coordinator Prateek Hajela to Madhya Pradesh.
The order was passed by a Bench of CJI Ranjan Gogoi and Justices SA Bobde and Rohinton Nariman.
Attorney General KK Venugopal who was present in court asked the Bench
“Is there a reason for this?”
CJI Gogoi replied:
“No order will be without a reason”
The Court asked the Executive to issue order transferring Hajela forthwith.
Hajela has been in charge of the preparation of NRC for the State of Assam.
