SC issued notice on plea challenging NPR notification: Petitioner

Supreme Court lawyer MR Shamshad, who has filed a petition challenging notification of National Population Register said, "We have challenged the notification of NPR as well on which notice has been issued, probably it will be tagged with the other petitions but NPR notification has been challenged on which notice has been issued." Nationwide protests have emerged since the implementation of Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), which will give Indian citizenship to religious minorities from Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh who have come to India to escape persecution.
