UP police chief orders drive to identify, deport illegal migrants

Oct 01, 2019 16:55 IST

Amid the political row over the National Register of Citizens in Assam, Uttar Pradesh Police Chief OP Singh has asked all district units to run a campaign to identify illegal Bangladeshi migrants. In a letter sent to District Police Chiefs, Singh said it has come to the notice that Bangladeshis are living illegally in the state and many of them have gone missing. The DGP wrote that places like railway stations, bus stations, new colonies and roadside locations where Bangladeshis and other foreign nationals seek shelter should be identified. He said the exercise was necessary to strengthen the State’s internal security.
