The Supreme Court on Monday expressed the hope that the revision applications against the discharge of foreigners in connection with the Tablighi Jamaat be heard and disposed expeditiously.
A bench headed by Justice A M Khanwilkar ordered that such representations should be decided, preferably within a period of four days, but not later than a week from their receipt.
Additional Solicitor General of India, K M Natraj, proposed the name of Joy Tirkey, Deputy Commissioner of Police, Delhi as the nodal officer to process the representations of foreign nationals facing cases in Delhi.
The ASG told the bench that 8 of such foreigners were discharged by the trial court, and revision petitions have been filed against the order of discharge.
The Court said that the discharged persons are at liberty to file applications seeking a return to the country of origin subject to giving undertaking and security before the trial court.
