A West Bengal resident has moved the Supreme Court seeking directions to Central government and State of West Bengal to detect, detain and deport illegal Rohingya and Bangladeshi infiltrators from West Bengal within one year.

The petitioner in her Public Interest Litigation has further prayed for direction to Centre and State to identify and invoke National Security Act against government employees, police personnel and security forces, who have links with infiltration mafias and help Rohingyas-Bangladeshis to infiltrate into West Bengal.

The petition filed through advocates Ashwani Kumar Dubey and Ashwini Kumar Upadhyay also prayed that disproportionate assets of such employees should be confiscated.

"Identify and invoke NSA against government employees, travel agents and other such people, who provides PAN, AADHAAR, Passport, Ration Card, Voter Card, Driving License to Rohingya and Bangladeshi infiltrators; and confiscate their 100% disproportionate assets," the petition said.

As per the petitioner, the cause of action for the plea arose on on May 2, 2021 when West Bengal assembly election results were declared and "Rohingya-Bangladeshi infiltrators started beating, killing, heckling, looting, kidnapping, raping, burning the Houses of Hindus who voted to BJP."

The plea further stated that influx of infiltrators poses serious threat to the unity, integrity and security of country.

"Total 5 crore infiltrators by taking advantage of their ethnic similarities and other connections with the people of India (are) illegally residing in India unlawfully," the petition said.
