Guwahati: At least 170 unregistered labourers from Assam were sent back towards the border on Thursday for working on the permanent campus of the IIM at Umsawli in Meghalaya without any work permit.

According to reports, the members of the Shillong Mihngi Circle of the Khasi Students’ Union (KSU) had gone to check the labourers on the IIM campus in the New Shillong Township and informed the matter to the district administration.

Later the administration along with the local police intervened in the matter.

Sources informed that the unregistered labourers were then packed off to Khanapara in four buses and two SUVs.

Meanwhile, the KSU circle’s general secretary, Raymond Kharjana raising concern over the matter stated the union members will continue to carry out such checking from time to time at various parts of Khasi and Jaintia Hills.

He also wondered how the authority concerned did not detect the presence of these labourers inside the IIM permanent campus.

“We are astonished to see these labourers who had brought their families along with them. This is a dangerous trend since no one knows the antecedents of these labourers,” said Raymond Kharjana.
