Over 110 declared foreigners sent to detention camps in Assam; families claim Indian citizens being harassed

Police in Assam have sent more than 110 declared foreigners to detention camps in the last fortnight as it looks for more than 72,000 such people, who remain untraceable, sources have said.
The state government has also directed that people who are absconding and declared foreigners must be booked by police, according to a letter sent to the Border Organisation of Assam police.
It has also reached out to the office of the state coordinator of the National Register of Citizens (NRC) for details of around 11,000 declared foreigners who have been traced as they tried to enrol in the register, commissioner and secretary of the home and political department Ashutosh Agnihotri said.
“We reactivated the task force in April and since then the number of people who have been detained is higher in Lower Assam districts,” an official familiar with the development said on condition of anonymity.
This rush by the police’s special task force to detain declared foreigners comes in the backdrop of the Supreme Court hearing a petition on the abysmal condition of detention centres in Assam.
