The Supreme Court condemns NRC Chairman Hajala by asking, 'Why should you not be sent to jail?'
The Supreme Court has expressed huge displeasure over the interview of Pratik Hajala, the chairperson to a newspaper.

During the said press conference, Hajela had recommended people to show the fresh document in regard to which the apex court admonished the Chairperson with serious concern remembering Hajela's prime duty to registrar only.

The Supreme Court asked Hajala, why you should not be sent to jail in contempt of court? Supreme Court asked Hajela and Registrar General to be alert in future and work according to the court order.

Court told Hajala that your job is to make NRC and not to work for the press. The Supreme Court said that hearing of the statement of Hajela has started itself with automatic cognizance. The court said that the statement given by Hajla is not correct. The Supreme Court said that keeping in mind this matter the final NRC is to be completed.

Supreme Court asked Hajela and Registrar General to be cautious in the future and work according to court orders. Hajala apologized in this regard and said that only after consulting the RGI he had approached the media.

The court said that the trial of this case will be on August 16 and the Central Government will file an SOP (Standard Operating Procedure) for it, but the fact is that the papers and other procedures are yet to be decided by the Supreme Court. Hajala has already given interviews which is a fit case for contempt of the court. Justice Ranjan Gogoi showed an interview of Hajala in a newspaper.
