On Thursday, the Border Security Force (BSF) arrested a Chinese national. During the interrogation, he told the officials that around 1,300 Indian SIM cards were sent to China in the last two years. A team of the Anti-Terrorist Squad (ATS) of Uttar Pradesh Police went to Malda in West Bengal to probe the accused.
The name of the accused is Han Junwe, who is a resident of Hubei. Through the BSF’s interrogation, he revealed that his alleged business partner Sun Jiang was arrested by the UP Police’s ATS an unspecified amount of time ago.
The DIG of BSF (South Bengal Frontier), SS Guleria, said they are trying to check whether he was working for any intelligence bureau or any organization that works against India.
The officials have seized a laptop, two iPhones, one Bangladeshi SIM card, two pen drives, ATM cards, and US dollars, along with some Bangladeshi and Indian currency.
Jiang mentioned Junwe and his wife’s names who are connected with illicit activities. The ATS reported a case against Junwe and his wife in Lucknow. This is the reason why Junwe couldn’t get an Indian visa. He later produced a Visa from Nepal and Bangladesh and entered India.
Junwe somehow managed to sneak into India on Thursday through the international border at Malda district, around 500km north of Kolkata. There he was spotted by the BSF. When the troops faced him, he tried to run but was caught and then brought for interrogation.
