Black cats will stay with Prafulla Kumar Mahanta. This is Gauhati High Court's instruction. Hearing a petition moved by the former chief minister on Wednesday, a single bench of the court on Thursday as the govenrment to restore the black cats withdrawn a few days back. The court has further instructed the Union home ministry to file an affidavit at any earlier date. Notably, Mahanta moved Gauhati High Court after the government has withdrawn blaks cats he was given a few years back.

In a petition he moved before the court on Wednesday, Mahanta doubted the safety and security of his life and urged the court help him get the security back.
