The Supreme Court on Thursday has asked the government to submit a status report on the Bangladeshi immigration and stressed national identity cards for all citizens of the country to resolve the perennial problem that has been plaguing Assam and the otehr north eastern states.

Hearing a bunch of lawsuits aimed at securing the country against illegal infiltration on Thursday, a division bench of Chief Justice K G Balakrishnan, Justice P Satahsivam and Justice J M Panchal approved a plan for multi-purpose national identity card for Indian citizens.

The bench said those having no identity cards should not be able to lead a normal life. Additional Solicitor General Amrendra Saran apprised the court of the government's ongoing work on these.
