Chinese citizen arrested in West Bengal found in possession of an Aadhaar card

A Chinese citizen was arrested in West Bengal’s Siliguri on Sunday night after he was supposedly caught possessing an Aadhaar card, Hindustan Times has reported. As per the report, the individual named Ye Wang was found using an Aadhaar card to book a hotel despite having a Chinese passport.

As per a UNI India report, Wang had arrived at the hotel situated on the city’s Sevoke road, about a week ago along with a Nepali citizen named Ganesh Bhattarai. The report claims that the duo had contacted a transport businessman Bappai Agarwal.

It is being alleged that the trio wanted to hatch a cheating and forgery scheme, owing to which they were arrested in the raid on the hotel, following which they have been sent on a week-long police remand. This raid was carried out by a joint team of Central Intelligence officials and the Indian Army if the UNI report is to be believed.

As per Siliguri’s police commissioner Sunil Kumar Chowdhary, the three accused have been booked under charges of Foreigner’s act, cheating and forgery. It has also been reported that fake ID cards have been found in the accused’s possession.

Incidentally, it isn’t the only time Aadhaar cars or their fake counterparts have been seized from foreign national residing in India.

It was reported that fake Aadhaar cards had been seized from illegal Myanmar Muslims in Manipur. It was also reported in this case that the Manipur police had arrested 10 individuals in connection with two fake Aadhar card manufacturing rackets which were operating in the towns of Moreh and Jiribam. Out of those arrested, nine are believed to be illegal immigrants hailing from Myanmar.

In another case, it was reported that 24 Bangladeshis having fake Aadhaar cards were arrested by the police over suspicion of them having terror links. Some of the accused even had ID cards issued by various madrasas of the country.
