Hate crimes against NE people; HC asks Centre to file ATR
New Delhi: The Delhi High Court on Wednesday asked the Centre to file a fresh report detailing the actions taken by it to curb hate crimes being committed here against people from the Northeast regions of India.
"Why you (Centre) have not file the report? File the action taken report (ATR) on or before September 10, the next date of hearing," a bench of Chief Justice G Rohini and Justice R S Endlaw said.
The bench on September 10 will also hear the contempt pleas filed against two Tis Hazari-based lawyers for allegedly assaulting a woman lawyer hailing from a northeastern state and her client who was molested at a metro station in north Delhi here.
It had expressed anguish over continuing incidents of violence against people from the Northeast despite its orders and had sought a report from the government on the steps taken by it to curb "the menace plaguing the society".
Earlier, Delhi police had told the court that a Special Police Unit (SPU) has been set up for dealing with such crimes and the SPU has been effective as required actions are being taken promptly.
