Manipur CM Biren Singh raises concerns about Rohingyas in the state, urges residents to identify agents who felicitate their entry

The Manipur CM urged locals to trace Rohingyas and the agents who are transporting them to the state

After six Rohingyas were apprehended by the Police in Manipur on Saturday, Chief Minister Biren Singh has raised concerns with the presence of Rohingyas in the state. He has asserted that efforts must be made to identify those who are felicitating their entry and providing them shelter in the state.

The six Rohingyas were caught with fake documents at the Imphal airport after they landed there from Delhi in an Indigo flight. The Manipur police had received an input that some illegal immigrants would be coming to Imphal by Indigo flight. Immediately, Foreigner Check Post (FCP) and a team of Imphal West district police were alerted which detained six suspected passengers at the airport. The six individuals were found to be carrying fake Aadhaar cards. Three of them had Manipur as their address on their Aadhaar cards, while the rest three had Hyderbad as their address. But none of them can speak Manipuri and only one of them could speak Hindi. Police also found an ATM card of a Myanmar bank with them.

Police investigation had revealed that the six Rohingyas were trained at a Madrasa in Delhi and had come to Manipur with the help of agents at the National Capital as well as in the state. DIG T Ngasangva had told reporters August 11 that the Rohingyas have already admitted that they are residents of Yangon and Mandalay in Myanmar. They have also informed that Indian agents had arranged fake Aadhaar card and other documents for them.

Addressing people on the occasion of Patriots’ Day on Tuesday, Singh said, “It indicates that many of them are taking shelter in the state and we have to find out the persons who are behind the illegal entry of Rohingya from different places.”

He also urged locals to trace Rohingyas and the agents who are transporting them to Manipur. He stated that the “already sinking” Manipuri population will disappear in the near future if residents do not take the initiative.
