India forms committee to oversee border fencing
The Indian Supreme Court has established a committee to oversee the fencing of the Indo-Bangladesh border. The order was issued by Justices Ranjan Gogoi and Rahinton Fali Nariman on Friday. The order came at the hearing of a case bought by the Assam Public Works, the All Assam Ahom Association, and the Assam Sanmilita Mahasangha, a confederation of indigenous people. They allege that illegal migrations flows from Bangladesh into Assam are undermining the sovereignty and territorial integrity of India. The formation of the committee, which was due to be established in July, was necessitated after the chair of the previous overseeing committee, former Home Secretary Madhukar Gupta expressed his inability to continue in the role, citing personal reasons. The three-man committee will be chaired by Former Union Home Secretary GK Pillai, who sits alongside former BSF Director-General D K Pathak, and Abdul Mannan, a former professor at the Department of Statistics of Gauhauti University. It is due to present its first report within three months. In early 2017, the Court ordered that construction of the border fence begin immediately. However, a slow government response have encouraged it to structure the new committee so as to be better equipped at overseeing the procedure.
