West Bengal resident and social activist Sangita Chakraborty has filed a plea in Supreme Court to direct the Central and State Government to detect, detain and deport the illegal Rohingya- Bangladeshi infiltrators from the State of West Bengal within 1 year.

The PIL claims the infiltrators to be a great threat to internal security and rule of law and therefore seeks direction to identify and invoke National Security Act against those government employees, police officials and security forces who have links with infiltrators and take away their disproportionate assets.

Chakraborty, in her plea, has called the infiltrators, who are apparently more than 5 crores in the State, to pose a threat to the unity, integrity and security of the country. It was further submitted that the infiltrators are not only a threat to a religious group but also crossing borders is illegal and against the spirit of the Constitution.

While stating Article 19 of the Constitution, it was submitted that the right to reside and settle within the territory of India and the right to move freely is only available to the citizens of the nation but the infiltrators settling here is a clear violation of the fundamental rights of the citizens of India.

It was submitted to direct the Governments to take necessary action against the infiltrators thereby declaring sentences for making forged documents against infiltrators to run consecutively and not concurrently.

In conclusion, Chakraborty further contended to make illegal infiltration a cognizable, non-bailable and non-compoundable offence by adding a new Chapter in the Indian Penal Code.
