Six Bangladeshis living illegally arrested from Mumbai

India’s anti-terrorism force on Friday arrested 6 Bangladeshis from Mumbai, the capital of the west-central Indian state of Maharashtra, for staying in the country without valid documents, the Hindustan Times reported. The arrested accuseds are in the 19-24 age groups and hail from Chittagong, Noakhali and Faridpur districts.

The accused had prepared false identification documents and were illegally living in the country for long. “They have confessed that, they are Bangladeshi nationals who had been staying in the country illegally,” an official from the anti-terrorism squad (ATS) said.

“They have been booked under relevant sections of the Passport (Entry Into India) Rules, the Foreigners Act as well as the Indian Penal Code,” he said.

ATS officials said the number of nationals from Bangladesh apprehended by the police now stood at 24.

Earlier, raids by the ATS had netted Bangladeshi nationals from Mumbai and the state’s second largest city, Pune, officials informed.

The ATS is also checking if the arrested are linked to the banned terror outfit Ansarullah Bangla Team (ABT), which has links with globally dreaded terrorist group al-Qaeda.

They have been remanded in police custody till March 28.
