Arunachal Pradesh: Over 400 people detained during checking drive in Itanagar & Naharlagun


A total of over 400 people were detained and later sent to the Banderdewa check gate during ILP checking drive organized by the All Nyishi Students’ Union (ANSU), along with the district administration and the police department, on Monday.

Speaking to reporters, ANSU president Toko Takam informed that the union carried out ILP checks at 13 locations in Itanagar and Naharlagun, with the help of the administration and the police.

While talking to the media, President of ANSU, Toko Takam said that the union carried out ILP checks at 13 locations in Itanagar and Naharlagun, with the help of the administration and the police. He added that the defaulters were first taken to the police station, and sent back to their respective places after thorough verification.

“This drive is not for individual benefit but for the greater interest of the state,” adding to it, he said that due to the NRC exercise in the neighboring state of Assam, many people have entered Arunachal without proper ILPs. Takam had requested the people of the state to bring in laborers only through proper channels, and minimize future tribulations in the state or on individuals.

ANSU general secretary Tukbom Ligu said the union will soon submit a representation to the state government to ensure thorough checking of ILPs at various checkpoints of the state, especially in the Assam-Arunachal boundary areas.
