Imphal: Altogether 17 foreigner workers who came to Manipur without valid documents were stopped from entering the state and turned back.

Official sources said today that 15 foreigners turned up at Jiribam and two at Kangpokpi yesterday and on Saturday.
Since they did not have valid travel documents they were turned back by the police and volunteers of the Joint Action Committee on Inner Line Permit System, the sources said.
JACILPS which has begun an agitation from June 1 is demanding immediate implementation of the inner line permit system claiming that people coming from other parts of the country and illegal foreigners outnumbered the tribal population in the state. The agitation will end on June 5.
