Assam police: Notice tagging retired soldier as Bangladeshi a ‘mistake’
The Assam police have the notice, which was sent to a retired Indian Army soldier for being an illegal migrant from Bangladesh, was meant for another man. In face of immense criticism, the Assam police on Tuesday admitted that there has been a goof-up, reports the NDTV. According to the report, the notice was meant for another man but it “mistakenly” got sent to retired Junior Commissioned Officer Mohd Azmal Haque who had served the country for 30 years. The notice was meant for one Md Azmal Haque, son of Maqbool Ali, of village Kalahikas but it got sent to Mohd Azmal Haque, the son of Mokbul Hussain, who is a resident of the same village.

  "It clearly shows that the case was registered against a different person and not the retired JCO. Unfortunately, due to the similarity of their names, the notice appears to have been wrongly served on the retired JCO," Assam Director General of Police Mukesh Sahay said on Tuesday. JCO Azmal said: “I cried a lot... After 30 years of service I had to face such an insult..." Talking about a similar notice which his wife received five years ago, he told the NDTV: “On that instance too, the officials had declared her an Indian citizen after the couple presented all the documents.” Infiltration from Bangladesh is a sensitive issue in Assam. Last year, when the BJP came to power in the state they promised to end illegal immigration by sealing the 262-km-long porous border.
