Hadapsar, 15th October 2023: In a coordinated operation, the Army’s Military Intelligence (MI) and Pune City Police have arrested four Bangladeshi nationals living illegally in the area.


In light of information suggesting some of the detainees may have criminal histories, Pune Police plan to seek further details from the Bangladesh High Commission (embassy).


An FIR was filed on October 13 against a total of 11 Bangladeshi nationals, including the four arrested individuals and their families—who also include minor children—for residing unlawfully in the Uruli Devachi and Hadapsar areas.


During interrogation, the arrested individuals allegedly confessed to being citizens of Bangladesh’s Jessore district. Authorities have confiscated various identification documents, including Bangladeshi papers as well as Indian PAN, Aadhaar, and voter cards. Notably, three of the arrested were previously detained in 2021 but were released due to insufficient documentary evidence. New findings include documentation and details of money transfers to their relatives in Bangladesh.


Senior Police Inspector Ravindra Shelke, who is in charge of the Hadapsar police station, told Punekar News, “We are in the process of contacting the Bangladesh Embassy to determine whether any criminal charges have been filed against the arrested individuals.”


The arrested persons have been identified as Nizam Rahim Ali Shaikh Rathi (30), Kamrol Roshan Mandal Rathi (28), and Sagar Alam Sheikh Rathi (23), who resided behind JSPM College in Uruli Devachi’s Adarsh Nagar; along with Babu Mosin Mandal Rathi (20), who lived in Hadapsar’s Kalepadal area and operated a biryani stall.


An FIR has been registered against them at the Hadapsar station for offences under sections 420, 465, 468, 467, 470 of the Indian Penal Code and sections of the Indian Passport Act and Foreigners Act.
