DIBRUGARH: On Sunday, an illegal Aadhar card centre was busted by the police in the Dibrugarh district of upper Assam and detained 3 people in connection to this case.
The three people detained are Dipen Doley, 29, Bitupan Deori, 27, and Aibi Deori, 30. They were detained from the Paltan Bazar area of the city where they were operating from an illegal centre in the resident of one Atiquor Rahman. The three of them hail from the town of Lakhimpur, which is located about 120 kilometres from Dibrugarh.
According to the police, the trio used to charge three hundred rupees for making Aadhaar cards.
The things the police recovered from the trio include desktop computers, laptops, Aadhaar card forms, and five thousand rupees in cash. They also seized a Tata Nixon car.
According to the police sources, this might be part of a greater nexus and multiple other illegal Aadhar card centres may be functioning across Assam. The police added that the accused could be making a lot of money from this illegal racket. The police have initiated a larger probe into this matter.
Officer-in-charge of Dibrugarh police station Rajiv Saikia said, "We are investigating the case and very soon there will be a crackdown against all illegal Aadhaar centres operating in Dibrugarh."
Apart from the ones detained, three others have also been picked up for questioning regarding this case by the police.
'After getting specific information, we conducted a search operation and found three people operating an illegal Aadhaar card centre in Paltan Bazar at the resident of one Atiquor Rahman. We have detained three people in connection with the case and three more were picked up for investigation," Saikia added.
