Meghalaya Police has pushed back 36 more illegal Bangladeshi migrants to Assam from coal-rich district of Jaintia Hills, police said today. With this deportation, the number of illegal Bangladeshi migrants who claimed themselves to be from Assam, has risen to 293. “The 36 illegal Bangladeshi migrants were pushed back to Assam as they claimed to be from that state,” Superintendent of Police, MK Singh said. The Meghalaya police started to drive out illegal Bangladeshi migrants soon after security agencies identified 11 places across the state susceptible to terror attacks. “We cannot take chances and the drive against illegal Bangladeshis would continue,” the official said. Earlier, Chief Minister Donkupar Roy instructed the state police and the district administration to keep extra-vigilant in the wake of the serial blast in Assam that claimed over 80 lives. “Not only illegal Bangladeshis but also outsiders who come to Meghalaya without any proper identification proof will be pushed back to the place” Roy added. He said that the state security was vital for the government and the people.
