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.
