The Chinese spy named Junwei Han (36), who was arrested by the Border Security Forces (BSF) of South Bengal for infiltration along the India-Bangladesh international border in West Bengal’s Malda district on May 10 (Thursday) morning, has made some startling revelations after hours of rigorous interrogation.
1300 Indian SIM cards smuggled to China by hiding in undergarments
Han, who has been a wanted criminal in India, has reportedly confessed smuggling as many as 1300 Indian SIM cards, procured by forging documents, to China in the last two years. Interrogation also revealed that Han and his associates used to hide the SIM cards in their undergarments to smuggle them out of India.
These SIM cards were subsequently used by a gang of Chinese people to hack accounts and commit financial frauds, a suspected activity of the Chinese Intelligence agency.
The BSF South Bengal Frontier said in a statement: “Han Junwei has been a wanted criminal and upon thorough interrogation, shocking facts have come to the fore. He has so far taken around 1300 Indian SIMs to China using fake documents from India. Junwei and his associates used to hide the SIM in undergarments and send these to China. These SIMs were used to hack accounts and to carry out several kinds of financial frauds. Their purpose was to cheat people using SIM to get their money out of money transaction machines.”
Following the disclosure, officials have intensified their investigation and are working to find more about these SIM cards. According to reports, the agencies have sought from these telecom operators to make a list of all Indian SIM cards being operated from China since 2010.
