Following a Supreme Court order, the Assam government has decided to release "declared foreigners" languishing in its detention centres for over three years. It has sent notifications in this regard to all six centres of the kind across the state. But the detainees would have to produce two sureties of Rs. 1 lakh each, besides a verifiable address, in order to be set free. Sources in the Assam government said they will also be required to provide biometric information such as fingerprint and iris scans, besides photographs, and report to a police station in their locality every week.
