Khan of Minuthong Hatta Makha Leikai, Don Leirak, Imphal East. Despite his temporary ILP for 15 days expired on July 28, 2022, the non local has been staying in the state without renewal of ILP.

The accused person was produced before the Executive Magistrate, Imphal East with a prayer to pass an appropriate order. Accordingly, Executive Magistrate, Imphal east passed an order directing the OC Porompat PS to deport the defaulter (accused person) immediately as he had stayed in an unlawful manner for more than six months in the State. Moreover, the order also directed the sponsoring entity to pay a fine of Rs.5000 for violating Manipur ILP guidelines.

The ILP implementing authority in Imphal East warned the landlords in Imphal East jurisdiction not to keep non-Manipuris without proper ILP documents. It further warned that legal actions including fine will be imposed against those persons violating ILP regulations.

Meanwhile, JCILPS and police conducted a joint drive at Paona Bazaron Thursday to detect the illegal immigrants and to check if non-locals in the city are possessing valid ILP cards or not.

JCILPS Convenor Phulindro Konsham said that many non-locals who are doing business in the State capital have been found possessing voter cards and Aadhaar cards in the name of the State.

He said that the concerned authority should properly verify the authenticity of the documents the non-locals are possessing. Such drives will be conducted in other parts of the State as well, he added.
