Bangladeshi with fake Indian passport caught at Bengaluru airport

Bengaluru: A 23-year-old Bangladeshi man with a fake Indian passport and other documents was arrested at Kempegowda International Airport (KIA) recently.

Abu Taher was in possession of an Aadhaar card, voter ID, two-wheeler and four-wheeler driving licences and PAN card availed from Assam. He had paid Rs 5,000 to get these fake documents and Rs 500 to cross the border near West Bengal in 2016, officials said.

On November 23, immigration officials detained Abu Taher after his documents were found fake. Taher was holding an Indian passport with the name of Alam Mohammed Yahia, a resident of Doboka in Assam, and had booked a ticket with a Dubai-heading flight. He was handed over to KIA police who have booked FIR under the Citizenship Act and the Passport Act.

“Taher worked as daily-wage worker in Assam for a year before travelling to other parts of the country,” said CK Baba, deputy commissioner of police (north-east).
