Itagar, February 26: Fears of illegal entry and greater threats to Aruchal Pradesh’s security arising out of the train services are beginning to show already after a man was found in possession of India maps where the volatile regions of Jammu & Kashmir and the Northeast were marked out. Two men travelling by the harlagun-Guwahati Inter-City Express were apprehended at the harlagun railway station by security personnel on Wednesday for entering the state without obtaining the mandatory inner line permits and train tickets. The two were handed over to the harlagun police station. Of the two, one Amarendra Je, was travelling with a fake ID card and had maps with him that marked out J&K and the Northeast regions. On the remaining parts of the map were written the words “United States of Hindustan Se, East Hindustan Company, and Hindustan Army”. District tourism officer TK Kopak, who is also in-charge of the tourist ILP facilitation centre at the rail station, said that while Je “claims to be an advocate in the Orissa High Court but he can neither write any application when asked to do so, and nor his physical appearance and his outfit shows he is an advocate “ Kopak also noted that many passengers had boarded the empty train coaches without ILP and tickets. He blamed the Northeast Frontier Railway authorities, stating that they “should be on strict vigil”.
