New Delhi, Nov 14: The Centre has decided to identify Bangladeshi infiltrators in India who have not returned to their country by analysing report of the 2011 Census and the visa entry documents of last 10 years, a report published in Bengali daily Bartaman said.
According to the report, the states of Assam and West Bengal have been among those which have been impacted the most by the infiltration and the Centre is likely to begin its identification in those two states. A meeting on internal security is scheduled to be held in New Delhi next month, the report added.
Issues related to Maoist activities, terrorism and Bangladeshi infiltration will be discussed in that session separately. The states bordering Bangladesh will be given a special attention in the meeting, it was learned.
Some well-to-do Bangladeshis are exerting political influence, it was said
Sources in the home ministry said a large number of Bangladeshis who are entering India with valid passports and visas are not returning. Besides the poor ones, one section of the Bangladeshis, which is entering India and not economically needy, has already set up establishments here and the home ministry suspects that this section is conniving with political forces.
