The Belagavi police have taken as many 7 persons of Bangladeshi origin into custody. One was arrested from Pune and other 6 were arrested from Auto Nagar Kanbargi, Belagavi.
One person had come to Belagavi about 8 months ago and got himself Aadhar card, PAN CAR and even a passport and was trying to fled to Dubai from Pune where he was nabbed at the airport. Out of the 7 in custody one is a old woman as well.
All the 7 used to reside in Auto Nagar and used to work as daily labourers in nearby shops.
Mohd Alamin Bepari (26)from Bangladesh came to Auto Nagar and took a bungalow on rent. He then made a affidavit in the local court about his birth and with that he applied for Ration card, Aadhar card and Election ID card.
By bribing the officials it is alleged that he got all these documents even a Passport and VISA to Dubai.
He was nabbed at Pune Airport and the officer there tried to speak to him in Kannada and as he could not understand anything the officer had some doubts and he investigated the person. He could not even speak Marathi and this made the officer alert and he was throughly interrogated and then he himself agreed he was from Bangladesh.
DCP G Radhika has said that, the case has been transferred to Belagavi police and now they have formed special teams to find if there are more such persons residing in Belagavi.
