Imphal: One hundred illegal migrants who attempted to enter Manipur through the Manipur-Assam border at Jiribam have been pushed back since Saturday, official sources said here on Monday.

Forty illegal migrants with fictitious documents and identity cards who attempted to enter Manipur were turned back from the Jiribam border check post, about 222 km west of here, yesterday, the sources said.

Earlier on Saturday, 60 illegal migrants who could not speak Manipuri or any tribal dialect and appeared to be foreign labourers were also pushed back from the check post, they said.

The police supported by security personnel, have been on a drive against infiltration by illegal migrants in the state in the past few days with massive combing operations being launched at different places, they said.
They said state forces have been asked to step up checking at three major border points at Jiribam, Mao (Manipur-Nagaland) and Moreh (Manipur-Myanmar).
