Eleven-year-old Sajida (name changed) has spent more than a year inside western Assam’s Kokrajhar jail despite not being a juvenile. She walked into the jail with her mother, Minara Khatoon, who was declared a foreigner by a tribunal but Assam government has not been able to trace her address in Bangladesh for her deportation. Minara, a widow and her daughter was taken into custody from Lathigram village in South Assam’s Cachar district as soon as the tribunal issued its order against her. Since her relatives refused to take care of her daughter, Sajida had no option but to walk into the jail with her mother.
