Youth held for using fake documents to attend medical class

Guwahati, Feb 7 (IANS) Police in Assam’s Cachar district have arrested a youth for using fake documents to attend classes at the Silchar Medical College and for claiming that he has links with Bangladesh-based jihadi outfits.

Police are on the lookout for three other accomplices of the man, identified as Suman Aziz Laskar.

“We arrested Suman Aziz Laskar after receiving intimation from the principal on Saturday. The youth was attending classes for the fourth semester of the MBBS course for the last few days. However, he had no documents to prove his admission,” said Cachar Superintendent of Police Rajveer Singh.

During interrogation, he said he was involved with a Bangladesh-based terror group and that he hails from Bangladesh.

“However, we checked his credentials and found that he hails from a village near Silchar in Assam’s Barak Valley,” the police officer said.

Police were taking the matter very seriously, particularly after his revelations of a nexus with Bangladesh-based terror groups, he said.

College authorities said some students doubted his credentials after he started attending classes. Laskar told his classmates that he got a transfer to Silchar Medical college from Tezpur Medical College.

“We have contacted his parents. However, he is changing his statement every now and then,” the police superintendent said.
