Gujarat's second joint interrogation centre to be in Ahmedabad

Ahmedabad Police's proposal for a joint interrogation centre was pending with the Home department for a long time. "As a lot of illegal Bangladeshi immigrants were detained over a period of time, and with the JIC at Bhuj full to capacity, the grant for a JIC in Ahmedabad was approved," said a source in the state home department. 

Senior police officers said they are conducting a survey for land for the JIC at the Agro Complex in Juhapura, were the Special Operations Group (SOG) office is located and are also assessing the possibility at the Gaekwad Haveli complex in the Walled City. Presently, illegal Bangladeshi immigrants are detained at the SOG campus. "However, the state government has suggested finding a land parcel for the JIC outside city limits," added a police officer. 

Police officers said that they need eight or nine barracks to lodge detainees, three cooks, clerical staff and security personnel for the JIC. "We are working out the details and will soon finalize the plot of land. 

Sources in the home department said that another proposal for a JIC — in South Gujarat — is pending with the government. "We are reviewing the proposal before sending for MHA approval," said one source.
