Members of the AKM (Ao Kaketshir Mungdang) have caught two Muslim persons for engaging in business without permit or permit for stay in Nagaland.
They were caught selling goods door-to-door in the evening of July 31. The accused persons were caught with doubtful ILP and tourist permits. The two were later identified as Guddu Ansari (26) and Waqim (21) and claimed to be hailing from Meerut in Uttar Pradesh.
Guddu Ansari was holding a tourist permit while Waqim was caught with no Inner Line Permit (ILP) but in possession of an ILP that did not belong to him. The ILP was also found to be overdue or expired.
The AKM said that the organization would check unauthorized activities from laborers and businessman with unregulated ILP from Dimapur. The AKM is doubtful at the state authorities in the way they handle issuances of ILP. The AKM lamented the improper implementation of Inner Line Permit in Mokokchung district.
The AKM has wondered how an Indian citizen can possibly be issued a “tourist permit.” The two persons were handed over to the district’s police for necessary action.
