Fencing: Delhi, Dispur draw SC ire

The Supreme Court on Wednesday slammed both Delhi and Dispur for failing to stop influx from across the Indo-Bangla border. The apex court further appointed an officer to physically verify the border fencing works.

A division bench comprising Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justice R F Nariman  straightly rejected the affidavits explaining a slew of measures to check influx of illegal Bangladesh nationals into the northeastern state through the porous Indo-Bangla border.

Then the duo asked senior advocate Upamanyu Hazarika to physically verify the fencing and security across the Indo-Bangla border running through Assam and file a final report by June 30. The home ministry will have to pay Rs 5 lakh to Hazarika for this purpose.

The court had also asked the MHA to file an affidavit indicating steps taken by it on border fencing, construction of border roads, night patrolling, flood-lights, scheme for deportation in consultation with the Bangladesh in terms of its December 17 order.
