Six Myanmarese Muslims detained at Imphal airport

Imphal: Six illegal migrants detained by police at Imphal airport on Saturday for possessing fake Adhaar cards have turned out to be Muslims from Myanmar.
Deputy inspector general of police (Range I) Themthing Ngasangva told reporters on Sunday night that the foreigners' checkpost manned by the state police at Imphal airport was alerted after they received specific information that some illegal migrants would land at the airport on Saturday morning.

Subsequently, the six migrants were detained for verification around 9.20 am. During interrogation, it was found that only one of them could speak Hindi, while the rest five speak Urdu.

All of them possessed Aadhaar cards and three of them had their addresses in Manipur.

Suspecting foul play in their entry to the state, the inspector of the check post submitted a report to the officer in charge of Singjamei police station here for conducting a proper verification.

During investigation, all the six failed to give satisfactory answers pertaining to their origin, purpose of visit and their destination, the senior police officer said.

He added that an ATM card in the name of one Hoe Myint Naing of Yangon were seized from them.
