A person with a Bangladeshi passport has been arrested from the city for taking snaps of a Defence medical facility, the police today said.
Mohammed Noor Islam, who was working as a wage labourer at the Command Hospital within the Alipore Police Station limits for the last one week, was detained by Command Hospital authorities after he started taking snaps of the medical facility using his mobile phone while coming out after finishing his work last night around 10 PM, they said.
Personnel from Alipore Police Station were called and Islam was arrested after his reasons for taking the photos of the Hospital were found “unsatisfactory”, an officer of Alipore Police Station said.
Noor’s mobile has been seized and sent for forensic test and Kolkata Police Special Task Force (STF) has started a probe into the matter.
“We are looking to the fact that whether he has got any links with any terror group. We are also asking him why he was taking photos of the hospital,” an officer of the STF said.
