Guwahati: Mohammed Sanaullah, the Kargil war veteran who was declared a foreigner by a tribunal in Assam recently, has been discharged from his job as a Sub Inspector of the Assam Police's Border Branch, it was announced on Saturday.

The discharge order cited the ruling of a Foreigners' Tribunal at Boko in Assam's Kamrup district declaring Sanaullah as a foreign national.

"M Sanaullah was discharged from service and is deprived from all the facilities as government servant with reference to order of the Foreigners' Tribunal that declared him as a foreign national of post 25-3-1971," said the discharge order issued by the Assam Police.

Sanaullah was detained earlier this week and sent to a detention camp in Goalpara district. His family had already filed a petition in the Gauhati High Court challenging the order passed by the Foreigners' Tribunal declaring him as a foreign national.

The police have also seized the uniform and other kit allotted to him.

Sanaullah's advocate Sahidul Islam said they have filed a petition challenging the order passed by Foreigners' Tribunal on Friday. "We have sufficient documents to prove his Indian identity," he added.

Assam’s Directorate of Sainik Welfare (DSW) has also come forward to provide legal assistance to Sanaullah, who served in the Indian Army for 30 years and upon retirement as Honorary Captain in 2017 took up a job with the Assam Police.

Born in July 30, 1967 to Mohammed Ali, a resident of Kalahiklash village under Boko area in Kamrup, he, as per records, joined the Indian Army in 1987. He also received a Presidents' Certificate in 2014 for his promotion to a Junior Commissioned Officer with effect from 2012.​
