Delhi Police Busts Ring Trafficking Rohingyas from Myanmar

In a significant breakthrough, Delhi Police has dismantled a network engaged in trafficking Rohingyas from Myanmar, transporting them through Bangladesh to various parts of India and abroad, including Russia. The operation came to light with the arrest of two individuals in Hyderabad. These arrests followed the deportation of a Myanmar couple who had used fake Indian passports to travel to Russia via New Delhi.

The clandestine network, operating primarily from Bangladesh, not only facilitated illegal entry into India but also provided forged Aadhaar and PAN cards. While some individuals were directed to different parts of India, those with financial resources were sent overseas. Authorities disclosed that the syndicate offered a bundled deal of 10 lakh Bangladeshi takas per person.

Two suspects, identified as Nurul, also known as Noor Alam, and Abdul Gaffar alias Arka Roy, have been apprehended. The investigation revealed that the illegal scheme was exposed after the deportation of a 30-year-old man and a 23-year-old woman from Russia.

The man possessed a passport issued under the name Shuvojit Das, while the woman carried documents in the name of Babita. Subsequent inquiries revealed their true identities as Toha and Rabiya, both citizens of Myanmar. Shockingly, the passports were issued from the regional passport office in Kolkata.

The couple departed for Russia from Delhi on February 20. Upon their deportation, they confessed to being lured by Alam into acquiring Indian documents, even selling their family jewelry to afford his services.

Deputy Commissioner of Police (Airport) Usha Rangnani disclosed, "The agent facilitated their illegal entry into India through the Agartala border. They then traveled to various places in West Bengal, where Alam and his associates arranged Aadhaar and PAN cards for them, along with fraudulently obtained passports."

Alam, traced to Hyderabad, was apprehended along with his associate Gaffar at the city's airport. He revealed that he managed the illegal operation from Bangladesh, while his partner, Sheikh Arif Ali, oversaw activities from West Bengal.

Ali, employed at a firm handling Aadhaar card updates, possessed skills in Photoshop and other editing software, which he used to fabricate documents. Gaffar confessed to collaborating with Alam in forging documents and attempting to secure a work visa.
