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.
