Residents warned on tenants

Shillong, July 24: Residents in the West Garo Hills have been asked to ascertain the credentials of their tenants in view of militancy.

West Garo Hills deputy commissioner Pravin Bakshi today said militants might seek refuge in localities in Tura and other urban and rural areas as tenants to evade arrest. He warned residents not to rent out accommodation to “unidentified persons”. He said the police have devised a format for inquiry and verification of the tenants, which can be obtained from police stations and outposts.

Among others, the form requires the tenant to give references of two “respectable” persons and calls for signature of the tenant and landlord jointly, he said.

“If the verification is not followed and persons with criminal and militant background enter as tenants, the needle of suspicion could also move to the landlord. As such, it is appealed to all to kindly co-operate,” Bakshi said.

In the case of hotels, lodges and hostels, he said verification of the identity of those seeking accommodation is required and in case of any suspicion, cops must be informed.
