Silchar, Jan 2: Deputy Commissioner S Lakshman, IAS, and Superintendent of Police Rakesh Roushan, IPS, of Cachar have expressed their thankfulness and gratitude to the people, media-persons, officials, staffs, DLOs, FLOs, LRCRs, school teachers, government employees and all others related to the part publication of draft NRC which was made available for all to check on the midnight of December 31, 2017. “No untoward incident has been reported so far. It was a huge test for us. Thankfully, we have pulled out a stunner. I am especially thankful to the police administration for their relentless efforts and service”, said DC Cachar at a press-meet held at his office on Monday evening.
“The case of Hanif Khan whose body was found hanging from a tree on Monday morning has been registered with us. NRC cannot be a reason for somebody’s suicide. I think he was suffering from mental pressure, anxiety, tension and depression. We are investigating the case now. People are spreading rumours. I assure that anybody found in spreading rumours regarding NRC will be brought to task. We will not allow any miscreant to take undue advantage and spread such rumours. Hanif Khan may have his own persol problems and family disputes. NRC has nothing to do with his death. We are investigating the case,” said SP Cachar.
SP Cachar expressed his satisfaction over the fact that no untoward incident had been reported from any NSK. DC Cachar assured there is nothing to fear because mes of eligible applicants and members will feature in the subsequent list. “The publication of further list(s) depends upon the order of the Supreme Court. NRC is an individual and application based system and process. It is tedious and time taking. Lots of homework had to be done for publishing this list. There are many issues for which a large number of mes have been not found in the list. Non clarity of the documents and clerical issues are some of the issues”, DC Cachar added to say.
Talking to The Sentinel this morning, DC Cachar said, “Field verification and collection of data have been completed to a very large extent. DMITs have been active and started on with their work form December 1, 2017. Cachar is a hugely populated area. Records and documents of a large number of people staying in Hailakandi and Karimganj districts which were earlier sub divisions under Cachar district, have their origil documents and linkages in this district only. turally, compared to others, we had an enormous amount of work and task to accomplish. Preparation for subsequent lists or second draft list is a continuous process and our teams are working round the clock”. It is relevant to mention here that 35.24% of mes in the first draft for Cachar have featured in the list. Out of 3, 97,562 applicants comprising 18, 23,302 persons in Cachar district who had applied for NRC, mes of 6, 42,679 persons have featured in the list.
