    Punjab appoints senior official to probe immigration

    Chandigarh, April 25 (IANS) The Punjab government Wednesday announced that an officer of the rank of an additional director general of police will probe all cases pertaining to illegal immigration and sham marriages of non-resident Indians (NRIs).

    Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal said such cases would be investigated with top priority and decided within a time frame.


    He said that cases of girls from Punjab being duped by NRIs for marriage and youth being conned by travel agents were increasing and would be dealt with strictly.


    'Travel agents, immigration consultants and marriage bureaus taking youths and daughters of Punjab for a ride would be dealt with strictly as per law,' Badal announced.


    He added that advertisements issued by these agents in the media would be scrutinised so that the youth are not duped in the name of greener pastures abroad or lucrative jobs, study or settlement offers in other countries.


    Badal referred at least four cases, brought to his notice by Lok Bhalai Party leader Balwant Singh Ramoowalia Wednesday, to the state police chief for investigation.


    The chief minister, who has already announced that the state government would have a ministry of non-resident Indian (NRI) affairs, said that fast track courts should be set up to deal with cases of marriage frauds committed by NRIs
