Steps announced to identify illegal immigrants

Dimapur, February 16 (MExN): More stringent measures to identify illegal immigrants, especially in Dimapur have been decided upon by civil society. In continuation of a series of meetings in the aftermath of the February 6 gang rape of a woman by persons believed to be illegal immigrants, civil society has decided to monitor and screen illegal immigrants. The Public Action Committee on Illegal Immigrants Detection (PAC) of Dimapur civil organizations has decided on a number of measures to detect illegal immigrants.
The organizations’ PAC has directed all original and permanent Muslim settlers of Dimapur to obtain a prescribed form from the office of the Naga Council Dimapur. The form is to be submitted duly filled within March 10, 2012. The office of the Naga Council is open from 11 AM – 3 PM, Monday to Thursday.  The PAC has issued the notice to enroll and register permanent Muslim settlers of Dimapur and identify illegal migrants to protect the identity and privilege of original Muslim settlers of Dimapur.
“Any citizen claiming to be original/permanent Muslim settlers of Dimapur found not possessing proper documents shall be deemed as illegal immigrants and shall be referred to concerned authorities for necessary action/deportation. The members of the Youth Association of Nagaland under Public Action Committee shall assist concerned authorities for the same.”
Further, the PAC of the civil organizations has reiterated its demand that ILP units/Passport Control Units be posted at the Dimapur Railway Station, Dillai Gate, Nagaland Gate (Golaghat road).  “ILP’s original purpose being to protect the tribal Nagas, the current alarming trend of unregulated/unabated influx of illegal migrants tied with all vice has virtually damaged the society and it is high time for the government, citizens and leaders alike to wake up to the situation and enforce ILP at the stated entry points,” a notice from the PAC said today.
“The PAC on behalf of all Nagas, reaffirm our appreciation and solidarity with all non-Nagas who faithfully and sincerely maintains cordial relations and respect to the ethos and culture of the Nagas since decades,” the notice said.
