CUTTACK: Rented houses in twin cities have come under the scanner of commissionerate of police. Cops have asked landlords to check documents and bona fides of people before letting out houses. Landlords and tenants will have to register themselves with police.

"We have created a format to register information of house owners as well as tenants. We will enforce the order very strictly. Stringent action will be taken against house owners and tenants, who don't get registered with us," said commissioner of police R P Sharma.

Initially, landlords and tenants will have to fill up a form, downloaded from the commissionerate of police website, and provide required information. Both will have to submit the form at the police station concerned.

Subsequently the process of online registration will be introduced, informed Sharma. He said an awareness drive will be launched to educate people about this.

"Even though several incidents of tenants' involvement in criminal activities have been reported, there is no provision for registration of landlords and tenants. We welcome the police intiative. This will curb crime and put a brake on stay of illegal immigrants," said Manoj Das, a resident of CDA locality here.

Official sources said many illegal immigrants are residing in the Millennium City. Some Bangladeshi refugees, who have taken houses on rent at Jobra, Kadam Rasul, Sutahat and Odia Bazaar, are allegedly involved in criminal activities. Last year two terrorists of Indian Mujahideen visited Bhubaneswar, Cuttack and Puri. The police and intelligence wing didn't have any clue. Recently, the Intelligence Bureau issued a terror alert for Odisha.
