Bangladesh woman arrested in Bengaluru for staying illegally in India for 10 years1 min read
Police in Bengaluru apprehended a Bangladeshi lady in possession of forged identification documents. For the previous ten years, the lady had been residing illegally in India.
According to the New Indian Express, the foreign national, Roni Begum, arrived in India roughly ten years ago and has been residing in Mumbai since then. She moved to Bengaluru five years ago and was living under a false identity. During the epidemic last year, she attempted to board an aircraft back to Bangladesh using a phoney passport.
However, the immigration office at the airport requested that she provide documentation in support of her passport, which she did not do.
Further investigation into the woman found that her address, as written in her passport, was in Byadarahalli, Bengaluru. The immigration office reported the incident to the Foreigners Regional Registration Office in Bengaluru, which led to the discovery of her true identity and the arrest by Byadarahalli police.
A lookout was out for the lady in Kolkata, Mumbai, and Bengaluru. Police are also looking for anyone who helped her get fraudulent identification documents such as a Voter ID and an Aadhar Card.
