NEW DELHI, April 1: The Supreme Court on Monday threatened to issue a non-bailable warrant against State Chief Secretary Aloke Kumar to ensure his presence in the Court, directing that he shall not be allowed to return to the State till the Court so permits.
The Supreme Court was hearing a case relating to the detention centres in Assam.
A Bench headed by Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi, however, refrained from passing the order after Solicitor General Tushar Mehta assured the Court that the Chief Secretary will be present for the next hearing on April 8.
The case relates to the living conditions of foreigners in Assam detention centres.
The Supreme Court decided to look into the matter, particularly the issues of living conditions and the long periods for which foreigners are detained in the centres.
