Bangladeshi who flew from Kuwait held at Jaipur airport

Jaipur: A Bangladesh national who had illegally entered India and then left for Kuwait in 2017 has been arrested after he landed at Jaipur International Airport by travelling on fraudulently obtained documents.

Officials at Airport police station said Shohel Molla, whose real name is Abdul Shaheed Ghazi, was intercepted by the immigration department at the airport on December 22. He had flown from Kuwait.

Police said Molla claimed to be a resident of West Bengal but failed to answer some crucial questions during interrogation. He was suspected of travelling from Kuwait on an emergency certificate that was obtained fraudulently.

The agencies found that Molla was a Bangladeshi national and his real name was Abdul Shaheed Ghazi. He had illegally entered India and worked at a biscuit factory in Kolkata, where he had met one Jahangir, who had arranged an Indian passport for him through illegal means, said officials.

“In 2017, Ghazi alias Molla travelled to Kuwait on a work visa and worked as a caretaker for cattle for two years. He soon got stranded there after his employer took away his passport. He then worked as a freelance worker in Kuwait before being caught by police there. He was detained for a month but, after due process from the Indian embassy, his emergency certificate was made, and he was sent back to India by flight,” said an immigration official. He added, “The case has been handed over to Jaipur Police.”
