Assam border police force has planned to detect ‘foreigners’ by introducing electronic devices to be used by its personnel while registering details of a suspected individual.
The electronic device is fitted with a camera for photos, a biometric device to store fingerprints, and registers latitude and longitude coordinates of the location from where the data about a suspected foreigner is entered into the device.
“Such a machine will leave no room for subjectivity. The data entered in the device will automatically reflect in the central server at the Border police headquarters in Guwahati,” said Additional DGP (Border), Bhaskar Jyoti Mahanta.
“Storing of biometrics and latitude and longitude will definitely go a long way in creating an error-free database of illegal foreigners,” added Mahanta.
