8 Bangladeshis arrested in Bihar

Darbhanga: Eight Bangladeshi nationals have been arrested from a village under Sadar police station area in Bihar’s Darbhanga district for staying in India without valid papers, a police officer said today.

Acting on a tip off, the police arrested eight Bangladeshi nationals from Mohammadpur village where they were staying for a week in a house on rent from its owner Banwari Yadav, the Superintendent of Police (SP), City, Harikishore Rai said.

When asked to produce valid papers for their stay in India, they could not furnish any documents, he said.

Shoes and clothes made in Bangladesh were recovered from the spot, Rai said, adding two others managed to escape ahead of the raid.

The Bangladeshis had taken Yadav’s house on rent by orally convincing the owner that they were labourers and introduced some of them as students, the SP (City) said.

The Bangladeshis were under interrogation at Sadar police station since last night, Rai said, adding that their names will be disclosed only after conclusion of probe.
