HC seeks report from Centre, State on Bangladeshi intruders

Ranchi: The Jharkhand High Court has sought a report from the state and union government on the intrusion of Bangladeshi residents in the Sahibganj district and its adjoining areas.

A division bench headed by Chief Justice Sanjaya Kumar Mishra gave the direction while hearing a PIL filed by a Jamshedpur-based social worker Danial Danish explaining how the intrusion has started changing the demography of the area and posed a threat to the existence of poor tribals. 

Advocate Rajeev Kumar appearing on behalf of Danial informed the court that intruders are busy in ‘love jihad’ and ‘land jihad’ on the land of Jharkhand taking advantage of the simplicity of tribal girls.

Intruders trap tribal women in their love traps and marry them. After marriage, they field them as candidates in the Panchayat election and through them siphon off government funds to promote anti-national activities.

Several illegal Urdu schools are operational in the bordering area where intruders take shelter before they settle in the locality, the advocate said. The high court directed the state and union to file an affidavit in the matter deferred hearing till July 21.
