SSB Suspends Head Constable Involved in Seema Haider’s Bus Inspection

SSB Suspends Head Constable Over Seema Haider’s Infiltration Case

The Sashastra Seema Bal (SSB) has taken action by suspending a head constable who was involved in checking a bus at the India-Nepal border during the investigation into how Pakistani resident Seema Haider and her four children entered India. The central agencies have raised concerns over how she traveled through Nepal to reach Noida from Karachi.

Seema Haider, 27, had established contact with Uttar Pradesh resident Sachin Meena through an online game in 2020 before making the journey to India this year. She was arrested by the Gautam Budh Nagar Police on July 4 but was later granted bail by a local court, which ruled that she entered India to reunite with her partner and not with any malicious intent.

The SSB’s internal investigation pointed to the head constable at the Khunwa checkpost, identified as Chandra Kamal Kalita from the 43rd Battalion SSB in Uttar Pradesh’s Siddharth Nagar. The order issued on August 2 stated that the head constable had checked 35 passengers on the bus. However, it was found that the passenger seat number 28 was blank/vacant, and the gender and age of seat numbers 37, 38, and 39 were mentioned as 14, 13, and 8 years, respectively, without mentioning their names. This raised suspicions about the accuracy of the passenger check and the effectiveness of border security protocols. As a result, the head constable has been suspended for failing to fulfill his prime duty of safeguarding the security of borders and preventing unauthorized entry into Indian territory.
