Assam DGP asks village heads in chars to keep tab on new faces

Press Trust of India  |  Nalbari(Assam) 

In order to prevent any 'jehadi' activities, Police today urged the village heads of 'char' areas (seasonal islands) to maintain a register of new people coming and staying at their places.

Visiting the Ajim Ali Char under Kurihamari village in Nalbari district, Police Director General Sahay requested the representatives to maintain a register of names and addresses of new faces entering their areas to mainly check jehadi activities.



He said the Police has taken strong steps in the recent past against jehadi elements in the state and apprehended a total of 40 hardcore activists.

For the first time, Sahay is on a two-day visit to char areas in the district, to have a first-hand report on the population and vacant areas of the places.

When asked if his sudden visit is related to settlement of Hindu Bangladeshis in char areas on the backdrop of the ongoing controversy and widespread protests in over proposed amendment to the Citizenship Act, Sahay said his visit is not related to the issue.

"My visit is only to build up the capacity of riverine people and strengthening police-public relationship," he said.

The top cop said Police is going to implement a new project for the char areas to keep them in touch with the police.

Besides, the police are also looking to reduce crimes against women in char areas, Sahay said.

The Police has decided to open a woman cell in all police stations to look after women related issues, he added.
