SC to Hear Assam-Related Petitions Against CAA Separately, Gives Centre 4 Weeks to Reply

New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Wednesday said it will hear Assam-related petitions on the Citizenship Amendment Act separately from the other pleas against the contentious law and gave the Centre two weeks to file a response on the cases.

A bench headed by Chief Justice SA Bobde said it will hear petitions pertaining to Assam and Tripura separately as the problem with CAA in these two states is different from rest of the country.

“The petitions concerning Assam and Tripura as well as matters related to Uttar Pradesh, which is going ahead with the implementation of CAA without framing any rules, can be dealt with separately,” the court said.
