Imphal: Thirty-eight Myanmar nationals were deported from Manipur on Tuesday through integrated check post at Indo-Myanmar border town Moreh in Tengnoupal district.

“In continuation of the deportation process of immigrants, the Government of Manipur has deported 38 (thirty-eight) Myanmar Nationals to their home country Myanmar through the Integrated Check Post (ICP), Moreh, today. They have been handed over safely to Myanmar authorities by the Immigration Officers of Government of India posted at ICP, Moreh,” chief minister N. Biren Singh posted on Facebook wall.

“The State Government is continuing the identification of illegal immigrants and remains steadfast in its resolve to deport them. Let’s keep our borders and country secure.”

The deportation of foreigners was done amid concerns over renewed violence in Manipur.

As Myanmar is going through troubling political upheavals, Myanmarese people often crossed the border either to Manipur or Mizoram. However the native indigenous in Manipur feel threatened coincident with the present crisis as the continuous immigration would possibly disrupt the demography in the region.
