An RTI application filed has revealed that 27 Rohingya Muslims living as illegal immigrants in Jammu own SIM cards. Activist Rohit Choudhary had filed a Right to Information Application seeking information on the number of Rohingya Muslims living in Jammu and Kashmir.
The data revealed that 27 Rohingya families and a total of 1988 Rohingyas are living in Jammu Tehsil and all of them have mobile numbers.
Choudhary said, "This means these people have fake documents or they are being supported by local people who are providing them mobile SIM cards. Government is aware of the families owning these SIM cards and can easily find out against whose name these are registered, but they are not treating the matter seriously."
