Guwahati: Banned insurgent group and separatist United Liberation Front of Asom (Independent) ‘Commander-in-Chief’ Paresh Baruah’s name appeared in the Complete Draft NRC which was Published on Monday. Baruah had earlier made it in the first draft published on December 31 (Midnight).

As per reports, after the publication of the Complete Draft NRC, when his family in Assam checked, they found the Complete Draft contained his photo, with Paresh Baruah’s birthplace as Chakalibhoria village (also known as Jeraigaon) in the Chabua area of Dibrugarh district in Assam. The date of birth of the ULFA (I) C-in-C states as February 15, 1957.

The Complete Draft NRC also contained the names of his five other family members that included his deceased mother Miliki Baruah, brother Bikul Baruah, sister-in-law Renu Baruah, niece Dimpi Baruah and nephew Sukapha Baruah.

Reports also suggested that meanwhile, Paresh Baruah’s wife Boby Bhuyan Baruah and his two sons Ankur and Akash’s names have not been included in the list. The family claimed that some documents were missing.

With over 40 lakh people having their names dropped down from the Final Draft of the National Register of Citizens (NRC), serious concerns have been raised from several quarters as most people are clueless about what to be done next or that is their fate now.

There were major security arrangements and an additional 220 companies of the Central Armed Force have been dispatched to Assam and its nearby states in order to control the situation.

It may be mentioned that out of the 3.29 Crore people over 40 lakh people have been left out even though the NRC officials have officially clarified that those whose names have not been included will not be declared as foreigners.

The officials further clarified that no punitive action will be taken against them. Registrar General of India, Shailesh stated before the Media on Monday that, “Whoever does not have a name will get the opportunity to file claim/ objections under adequate time. Those left out will have the option to file an online application in NRC website or visit an NRC Seva Kendra.”
