The Delhi High Court on Tuesday set a six-week deadline for the police to set up a helpline for residents from the Northeast. The order came days after an Arunachal Pradesh boy died after an alleged racial attack at a market in Delhi.
Nido Taniam was allegedly racially targeted and was injured in the scuffle. He died in his sleep.
On its part, the police submitted in court that a special unit has been set up and the Northeast states have been asked to send personnel on deputation.
The court also asked the Delhi and the Central governments to set up hostels for the Northeast residents. In this regard, the Home Ministry informed that two new hostels have been proposed for students from the region.
The HC told the Delhi government to reply on steps being taken to deal with the issue of sensitisation. The court is slated to issue directions in this regard in a day or two.
