On 23 January, Bengaluru police caught a man and a 19-year-old Pakistani woman who was living illegally with a forged identity in India. She allegedly married a Hindu man and entered the Indian state from the porous border of Nepal. The police teams are investigating espionage links as well.
As per a report by Hindustan Times, the Deputy Commissioner of Police of Whitefield division of Bengaluru, S Girish, told media that they had arrested a 26-year-old man for illegally bringing a Pakistani woman to India. He has been identified as Mulayam Singh Yadav, a native of Uttar Pradesh.
The woman has been identified as Iqra Jeevani, a native of Hyderabad in Pakistan.
As per a report by Indian Express, Yadav met the girl through an online gaming application called Ludo. They fell in love and decided to marry each other.
As per another report, Yadav called her to Nepal where they got married and then entered India after crossing the India-Nepal border. After crossing the border, they reached Birganj and then traveled to Patna.
The duo stayed there for a couple of days and then moved to Bengaluru. They rented a house near Ayyappa temple in the Junnasandra area.
Yadav started working as a security guard at a private firm. Reports say he has been working there since September 2022.
The police caught the couple after central investigating agencies tracked a call to Pakistan. Iqra was trying to contact her family in Pakistan and it was then that she came under the scanner.
The agencies immediately alerted the Karnataka police after which the police raided the house and caught both the accused.
Iqra was handed over to the Foreigners Regional Registration Office (FRRO) officials soon after the arrest from where she was sent to a state woman shelter home.
Yadav on the other hand has been arrested by the police and a case against him has been filed at the Bellandur police station in Bengaluru.
Yadav not only infiltered a Pakistani woman into India but also prepared illegal documents for her, as per allegations. He got an Aaadhar Card with the name Rava Yadav made for Iqra and also got her to apply for a passport.
DCP Girish said they have been tracking the background links of the woman to make sure she is not a planted terrorist with espionage links.
