Guwahati, Aug 9: The draft publication of NRC which is slated to be published on December 31 this year may face disruptions as there are reports that some fundamentalist forces are trying to create disturbances in Assam before publication of draft National Register of Citizens (NRC) on or before the said date. The threat comes after intelligence input reported entry of many fundamentalist groups to the state for creating disturbances, especially in five Muslim-dominated districts of the state, intelligence sources said here on Wednesday.

Assam police special branch headquarters at Kahilipara here has already issued alert notices to police and the security forces to deal with any untoward situation arising during the NRC updation process. Such alert has been sounded to all district superintendent of police (SPs) across the state, Assam Police (Special branch) additional director general (ADG) Pallav Bhattacharya told The Hills Times here.

The Central intelligence has already provided an input that some foreign fundamentalist groups have entered into the state and are trying to establish contacts with some Assam-based organisation to prepare blue print for carrying out disruptive activities. The names of several million people belonging mostly to the Bangladeshi nationals will be deleted and their citizenship will be curtailed once the NRC draft is published.

“Most of these organisations are coming from South and North Indians states and Bangladesh. There are reports that some groups are trying to motivate people in mosques, madrasas and other religious places to gain ground in the state,” the sources also said.

Some members of Jamaatul Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB), Neo JMB, Ansarullah Bangla Team are trying to sneak into the country through porous border with Assam, Meghalaya, Tripura and West Bengal.

The police are monitoring activities of some organisations like South India based organisation, Popular Front of India. Assam Police Special DG Kula Saikia and ADGP (SB) Pallav Bhattacharya have visited various places of Golaghat, Jorhat, Sivsagar, Charaideo, Dibrugarh, Tinsukia to review the situation. ADGP (law & order) Mukesh Agarwala also visited several districts of lower Assam to review the situation.

Notably, even as the Supreme Court, which has been monitoring the updating of the NRC in Assam came down heavily on chief minister Sarbananda Sonowal for saying the draft NRC will be published by December 31. With the hurdles in the digitisation of these records, it is likely that Assam will not miss deadline for updating the NRC. The apex court had earlier asked for preparation of NRC to keep a check on illegal migration from Bangladesh. The apex court was hearing a matter relating to fencing of Indo-Bangla border.

Sources in the NRC Co-ordinator here informed that they have already completed 96 percent of verification process so that the draft NRC can be published on or before December 31.

However, some sources informed that the update of the NRC might further get delayed with more than 55 lakh documents pertaining to family tree are yet to be verified. Most of such documents are

erroneous and of suspicious nature.
