APW moves SC for 100 per cent reverification of NRC process in Assam
GUWAHATI | February 20, 2020:
The Assam Public Works (APW), an NGO whose petition had led to the NRC exercise in Assam, has moved the Supreme Court for 100 per cent reverification of the entire process and a probe by a judicial committee to detect the discrepancies involved in updating the citizens' register.
In a fresh affidavit filed in the apex court on Monday, the APW alleged that the National Register of Citizens (NRC), which was published on August 31, 2019, left out the names of indigenous people but included many illegal foreigners.
The final NRC list had the names of four Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh "jihadis", who were arrested from Barpeta district, the affidavit said.
