NGO casts aspersions on NRC tampering probe

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, April 29 � Though the Circle Officer of Kamrup (Metro) district today held a public hearing on the issue of tampering of the original National Register of Citizens (NRC) of 1951, the Prabajan Virodhi Mancha has alleged that it was only an attempt of cover-up by the State government to protect the interests of the Bangladeshi nationals.

In a statement, the Mancha said that the public hearing had no meaning as the general public did not have access to the original documents and reports were received only from a few data entry operators who are not willing to come out in the open. The data entry operators clearly mentioned that there were variations in the ink in the original documents, which proved that they were tampered with.

The Mancha demanded a thorough probe by a Central agency and said that the tests of the original document should be carried out in a Central forensic laboratory.
