Sanjib Dey is a resident of Durganagar-Ujangram village of Cachar district under Udharband police in Assam. He and his family have been living there for generations. But, this year on 25th of February, Foreigners Tribunal( fourth) declared him Bangladeshi(a Citizen of Bangladesh) and as a result of the judgement, he became a foreigner. But, he had a chance to prove himself as a Citizen of India by filing a case in the higher court against the judgement. But he is not economically sound to continue the legal process. Similarly, Mayarani Das, a resident of Gonirgram-Sonai village under Kochurdom Police Station. Her family has been living there for generations. But, on the month of January, she was declared as Bangladeshi by Foreigners Tribunal(Sixth) of Assam. But, her family was not also economically sound to fought the legal battle. So, they met Sri Samrat Dutta, President of Hindu Samhati's Barak Valley Unit and sought legal help. So, Hindu Samhati as always working for the welfare of the marginalised Hindus, extended their legal support. On, 4th of April, Hindu Samhati appointed a lawyer and appealed in the Guwahati High Court against the judgement of the Foreigners Tribunal. Besides, Hindu Samhati will help them legally till they are declared as a Citizen of India.
