A three-member bench headed by Chief Justice of India SA Bobde and comprising Justices BR Gavai and Surya Kant will hear a clutch of petitions filed by the All Assam Minority Students Union (AAMSU) and Jamiat-Ulema-e-Hind.
The main petitioner Assam Public Works (APW) has filed an application for 100 per cent sample verification of the NRC list.
Meanwhile, the Supreme Court has moved the NRC case from a special bench to a regular bench for further hearing. Earlier, a special bench headed by the then CJI Ranjan Gogoi and Justice Rohinton Fali Nariman was hearing the case.(ASSAM TRIBUNE)
