2 Myanmar citizens expelled for illegal entry into Kiphire

Two Myanmar citizens, who had made illegal entry inside India without Free Movement Regime (FMR) permit, along the Indo-Myanmar border under Kiphire district, were expelled from the Indian territory following an ‘Expulsion order’ issued by the Superintendent of Police (SP) cum Foreigners Registration Officer (FRO), Kiphire district K Swarnambika.
FMR permit is a document, which allows the people living along the Indo-Myanmar border to travel 16 Kms across the boundary without Visa restrictions on both sides.
In a press release, Kiphire police PRO S Lanu Aier informed that FMR violations were, however, often reported along the Indo-Myanmar border.
According to Kiphire police PRO, the SP cum FRO Kiphire has warned that any FMR violations in the Kiphire district henceforth would be dealt strictly as per legal provisions. Stating that India country practices the concept of “Atithi Devo Bhava” (‘Guest is our God’), the SP cum FRO Kiphire said Kiphire police welcome the guest from Myanmar border’s FMR regime who were kith and kin to the people living on the other boundary of India.
However, to enter the Indian Territory, SP cum FRO said that a valid FMR permit was required. She has requested the village councils and civil society organizations to sensitize the people living on the Indo-Myanmar border about FMR. She also requested the border guarding force and village guards to keep strict vigil along the Indo-Myanmar border to prevent any unauthorized ingress into the Indian territory.
