The Jharkhand High Court sought a report from the state and union governments on the influx of Bangladeshis in Jharkhand’s Sahibganj and surrounding areas.
A division bench led by Chief Justice Sanjaya Kumar Mishra issued the directive while hearing a PIL filed by Jamshedpur-based social worker Danial Danish, who explained how the intrusion has begun to change the demography of the area and threatened the existence of poor tribals.
Danial’s lawyer, Rajeev Kumar, told the court that intruders are engaging in ”love jihad” and ”land jihad” on Jharkhand’s land, taking advantage of tribal women’s simplicity.
The high court directed the state and union to file an affidavit in the matter, and deferred the hearing till July 21.
