Two Bangladeshis awarded one year jail sentence for illegally living in India

A Thane court on Wednesday sentenced two Bangladeshis to an year in jail for residing in India without any proper travel documents. The assistant sessions judge H B Shelke, also fined them a sum of Rs 5000.

The two convicts in question, Mumtaz Rasul Shaikh (45) and Munira Akhtar Husein (30) were convicted under sections relating to Passport (Entry into India) Rules 1950. They are said to be hailing from the Nodaile district in Bangladesh.

The two women were apprehended by a team of Anti-Human Trafficking Cell from Mira road back in July 2017. As per the Additional Public Prosecutor Ujjwala Moholkar, they used to work as labourers and resided in impoverished areas. The prosecutor also claimed that these women were found to possess no valid travel documents.

As a result of this the judge sentenced them to a rigorous imprisonment of one year.

Incidentally Thane has seen another Bangladesh related activity in recent days, with the police arresting five Bangladeshi nationals for a robbery in the region. These people have been accused of robbing cash and jewellery worth Rs 9.98 lakh.

Based on preliminary investigation the police has ascertained that three of these nationals flew into India a few days and and two others came by train. While being armed they allegedly broke into a house in Thane’s Kashimira locality and tied up all the residents.

The five have been identified as Mohammad Ismail Hawaldar, Bappi Akbar Sheikh, Mohammad Latif Sheikh and Mohammad Akram Irfan Ali and Lukman China Mian. All except China Mian hail from Khulna in Bangladesh while China Mian hails from Sylhet.
