The Supreme Court on Tuesday struck down as unconstitutional a central government notification that puts the onus of proving a particular person to be a foreigner on the complainant.

A Bench comprising Justices SB Sinha and Markandeya Katju also directed the Union government to constitute sufficient number of tribunals to detect alleged infiltration of thousands of Bangladeshis into Assam.
