DIMAPUR, Aug 31 - A total of 15 Inner Line Permit (ILP) defaulters were arrested in Dimapur district since July 30, according to Dimapur police on Friday. While 13 of them were granted bail by the court, two are still in detention.
Police said a case has been registered against four of the defaulters. After final draft publication of NRC in Assam on July 30, Nagaland Government has intensified enforcement of ILP in the State.
Neighbouring States of Assam fear possible influx of illegal immigrants after more than 40 lakh people did not make it to the final draft list of the NRC.
Nagaland State authorities, civil society organisations and student bodies have swung into action to check the entry of illegal immigrants into the State.
The Naga Tribes Council had formed a joint committee on prevention of illegal immigrants and submitted a representation to the State Government.
The State Government also set up a committee led by commissioner and secretary to CM, Abhishek Singh, to look into the issue. Singh said, �We will come to a system which is full-proof and does not allow any illegal immigrants to come in.�
He said a delegation led by former Dimapur deputy commissioner Kesonyu Yhome was sent to Arunachal Pradesh and Mizoram to study the ILP system. The team has submitted a report to the committee.
Singh said the main objective of the committee was to ensure that nobody whose name is not included in the NRC should get an ILP.
