"In this connection, it is clarified that this news is absolutely false as the said Alam Hussain Mazumdar was not included in Draft NRC on account of being found ineligible in family tree verification and for submitting a forged birth certificate".

Hajela said the media reports appeared to have been published without verification from the NRC authorities.

This clarification is being issued as irresponsible false reporting has the potential of casting aspersions on the purity of the NRC, the state coordinator said.
