Illegal immigrants from Bangladesh arrested by Mumbai police could have connections with AIMIM, 2 MLAs under probe: Report

The Mumbai police have also arrested two agents who were in possession of several counterfeit documents. One of the accused was arrested from Saki Naka area in Mumbai while the other was apprehended from Malegaon in Nashik.

The Mumbai police, which had earlier arrested three Bangladeshi immigrants staying illegally in the city, have found links of the accused with Assaduddin Owaisi’s party AIMIM (All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen), reported Times Now.

Two AIMIM MLAs in the dock

As per the report, the cops have seized letterheads of two AIMIM MLAs in connection to the case. The accused MLAs have been identified as Shaikh Aasif Shaikh Rashid and Mufti Mohammed Ismail. Citing sources, Times Now reported that the letterheads of 5 other MLAs have been seized but the police have not revealed their names or their respective political parties.

Besides, the cops have initiated a probe to determine whether the recovered letterheads are authentic or forged. A police official, however, conceded that it might be too early to reach a conclusion. He added, “It could be a fake letter pad or even a genuine letter issued to a genuine person. However, all documents seized cannot be fake.”
