At Balat, a sleepy town along the India-Bangladesh border, he met local residents and those who he remembered had helped him in setting up the camp, a senior district official told PTI.
The camp had given refuge to a number of youths from neighbouring Bangladesh, he said.
"I am indebted to the people of Balat and I cherish my time here. I ought to have visited Balat long back," the official quoted Hamid as saying.
Hamid also visited Rabindranath Tagore's residence in the state capital and paid tribute to the Nobel laureate.
