Ensure safety of people from northeastern states in Delhi: High Court

0

The Delhi High Court on Wednesday asked the city government and police to implement the directions it had given time and again on the safety and security of people from the northeastern states residing in the capital.

A division bench of Chief Justice G. Rohini and Justice Jayant Nath disposed of the plea and asked the Delhi government and police to adhere to directions given by it on the issue.

The court took suo motu cognizance to curb alleged hate crimes and racial discrimination against people from the northeastern states and said that the government needs to “play a proactive role” in this.

The detailed order will be available later, said the court.

The court also asked the Delhi government and police to implement recommendations of the committee led by former bureaucrat M.P. Bezbaruah constituted by the union home ministry, following a spate of attacks against people from the region living in Delhi.

The 11-member committee was formed following the killing of Nido Tania, a 19-year-old student from Arunachal Pradesh in Delhi in January 2014.
