New Delhi, Mar 13 (ANI): Minister of State for Home Affairs Jitendra Singh on Tuesday informed instances of violation of the law and involvement in illegal activities by some Bangladeshi nationals have been reported.
"Registration of cases and action thereon comes within the purview of police stations and State Governments/ Union Territory Administrations concerned. Statistical data of this nature is not centrally maintained," said Singh in a written reply in the Lok Sabha.
He further informed that as per information available, Interpol wing of the Central Bureau of Investigation had received a list of six wanted criminals, who are alleged killers of Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
"Appropriate action, including issuing Look Out Circulars against these six persons, was taken," he added.
Singh said the law enforcement agencies maintain a strict vigil on the activities of foreigners, including Bangladeshi nationals, in the country and take appropriate action.
"Central Government is vested with powers to deport a foreign national under section 3(2)(c) of the Foreigners Act, 1946. These powers to identify and deport illegally staying foreign nationals, including Bangladeshi nationals, have also been delegated to the State Governments/ UT Administrations. Detection and deportation of such illegal immigrants is a continuous process," said Singh.
" A revised procedure for detection and deportation of illegal Bangladeshi immigrants was communicated to the State Governments/ Union Territory Administrations in November, 2009, which was partially modified in February, 2011. The procedure includes sending back then and there, the illegal immigrants who are intercepted at the border while entering India unauthorisedly," he added. (ANI)
