Our Correspondent
MANGALDAI, June 13: Assam DGP Kuladhar Saikia has ruled out any intelligence report regarding the evil design conspiracy by religious fundamental forces to create law-and-order situation following the publication of the second and final draft list of NRC by the end of this month. He was talking to the media immediately after a high-level review meeting on the security scenario of the ongoing NRC update process as well as the post-draft publication for the three northern Assam districts – Darrang, Udalguri and Sonitpur –at Mangaldai on Wednesday.

In reply to a question from media regarding a recent report in a section of Assamese vernacular media that intelligence sources had identified Kharupetia area as the most vulnerable where religious fundamental forces linked to Bangladesh and Kerala had stepped up their activities for violent activities following the publication of final draft of the NRC, DGP Saikia denied receiving any such inputs from intelligence sources while he asserted introduction of both technical and human intelligence mechanism to gather all confirmed reports.

“We have no such specific reports and we have planned to collect ground reports from human intelligence along with technical intelligence,” he said. He also assured that the security measures so far taken in support with paramilitary forces had been satisfactory and they were ready to strictly deal with any situation which might disturb the law-and-order situation. “The SPs of the respective districts have dynamically identified the vulnerable NRC Seva Kendras and additional forces have been made ready as per their requirement. We are completely ready to complete the NRC process peacefully,” DGP Saikia added.

The closed door review meeting in the conference hall of the office of the Deputy Commissioner of Darrang was presided over by the Chief Secretary TY Das and it was attended by several senior officials of the State government, including Additional Chief Secretary Alok Kumar, Police Superintendents of all the relevant districts, senior officials from Army and paramilitary forces.
