Heavy influx of Jihadists among migrant workers in Kerala; Police remain clueless: Reports

published on March 5, 2015

Thiruvananthapuram: Intelligence reports have confirmed a heavy influx of criminals and Jihadists from other states into the state capital, under the guise of migrant workers. Sources have stated that they are staying on rent in luxury apartments and other posh residences in the capital city and are engaged in rackets of drugs, counterfeit currency and sex. In spite of residing in prime locations in the capital city of Thiruvananthapuram, police remains clueless about their whereabouts. Reports state that their place of stay bears close proximity to the military areas and other strategic points, which happens to be a cause for concern.

According to Intelligence reports, migrant workers from Andhra, Tamil Nadu and West Bengal have migrated into Thiruvananthapuram and are camping in the outskirts of the city. They have with them, passports, identity cards and PAN cards, all issued in fake addresses. They use the same for all identification purposes. This means that when a crime is committed, there is no way authorities can trace them out. The recently arrested members of the drug racket, which has been widely indulging in large scale theft as well has thrown light on the heavy influx and subsequent use of fake identification cards as well. Criminals are said to abscond once they come out on bail, leaving police clueless about their whereabouts.

Reports state that these criminals and Jihadists worm their way into the city from other states and make arrangements for their own stay. In a short time, they ensure that they gather enough contacts and acquaintances to consolidate their identity. Soon, others join him and stay in the apartments under the guise of being relatives. And then, the person who took the flat on rent, with fake documents slyly take leave of the place. The identification forms in police stations, which serve as records for identifying migrant workers and confirming their veracity and authentic, remain shockingly empty, devoid of any authentic or relevant data. And with these missing, Kerala Police seem to be grappling in the dark when it comes to a scene of crime.
