Crime Branch raids in Bengaluru: 60 illegal Bangladeshi immigrants held

The CCB police revealed that the detainees were allegedly led to Bengaluru by a Bangladeshi man and a criminal case would be filed against him.

Central Crime Branch (CCB) has on Saturday nabbed 60 illegal immigrants from Bangladesh. The raids were carried out in Ramamurthynagar, Bellandur, and Marathahalli areas from where 60 alleged illegally migrated Bangladeshi immigrants were caught. Of the 60 people, 22 are women and nine are minor girls.

According to reports, police Commissioner Bhaskar Rao assured that their deportation will be expedited soon. They are currently housed in a shelter until the time their deportation is initiated. The CCB police revealed that the detainees were allegedly led to Bengaluru by a Bangladeshi man and a criminal case would be filed against him.

“Those who were held up are from various regions of Bangladesh. They have come to Bengaluru in the last 1 or 2 months. They were carrying out menial jobs or as labourers in the city,” Joint Police Commissioner, Sandeep Patil said.

He further continued, “The man who got these Bangladeshis here had come to the city many years ago and was successful in obtaining identity cards issued by various government agencies. The scope of our investigation also includes how this man so easily procured all these identity cards.”

Furthermore, all the property owners who rented out their spaces to these illegal immigrants are being booked by the police. The police are also in touch with the Intelligence Bureau and Foreigners Regional Registration Office (FRRO) for the deportation of those detained.

The police completely denied that the raids were carried out in the backdrop of a proposal by Home Minister Basavaraj Bommai to introduce National Register of Citizens (NRC) in the State. “The recent drives have got nothing do with the NRC. It was a routine check but this time detention happened in a large number. Recently, we had also detained African citizens who were overstaying in the city,” Patil said. The police had last week identified six people from African countries who prolonged their stay in the city despite the expiry of their visas.
