Man nabbed for helping illegal migrants

Correspondent

A man who facilitated illegal migrants to obtain Aadhaar cards by providing residential proofs was arrested by police in Manipur’s Thoubal district on Sunday.
The police accused him for providing residential proof certificates to the illegal migrants from Bangladesh so that they can obtain Aadhaar cards as natives of the state.
Hafiz Salahdur (26) son of Md Sallauddin of Mayang Imphal of Imphal West was arrested by a team of Thoubal district police Sunday morning from a rented house at Lilong Bazar in Thoubal district.
The police alleged that the arrested person recently provided a residential proof certificate to a Bangladesh national identified as Md Ramjan Ali (35) who entered into the state illegally.
Md Ramjan Ali was recently arrested by the police during a special drive against illegal migrants and ILP violators.
The arrested Ramjan tried to prove himself as a native of the state by showing a genuine Aadhaar card issued in his name.
However, during a police investigation, he was found to have been arrested earlier for being an illegal migrant.
The state police have been conducting a special drive to detect illegal migrants and violators of ILP across the state in the last few weeks after instruction from the chief minister.
In the first week of the drive, the police have rounded up over 650 migrants possessing no valid ILP pass including a large number of Bangladesh and Myanmar nationals.
Chief minister N Biren Singh had expressed concern over the alarming influx of illegal migrants into the state and sought cooperation of the masses in detecting the illegal migrants.
