Two Bangladeshi nationals were apprehended by the Navi Mumbai Police`s Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) for allegedly staying in India illegally, an official revealed on Sunday, reported PTI.
According to the report, the two offenders, both 24 years old, were apprehended on Friday in Khidukpada hamlet in Nadve, Panvel, according to a cyber police statement.
ATS personnel assessing in the Khidukpada region spotted the two people living in a chawl. When questioned, they were unable to provide any valid documents proving their presence in the nation.
Although the arrested individuals had Aadhaar cards, voter ID cards, and driver`s licences in their names, they were unable to show the necessary papers establishing their legal status in India.
A case was filed against them on Saturday under the Passport (Entry into India) Rules-1950 and the Foreigners Act.
According to the official, local police have launched an inquiry into the arrestees` activities and any potential connections to illegal immigration networks.
According to an official statement on Sunday, the cyber police have started legal action against four people for allegedly using a fraudulent share trading scheme to swindle a 45-year-old Navi Mumbai, Maharashtra resident of nearly Rs 17 lakh.
According to a PTI report, the accused enticed the victim, a Nerul resident, with claims of enormous profits from share trading.
The newspaper quotes a cyber police official as saying that between December 5, 2023, and January 28, 2024, the perpetrators tricked the victim into parting with Rs 17.30 lakh through a fraudulent share trading scheme.
According to reports, the four individuals were the subject of a complaint filed by the police on Saturday, citing violations of Indian Penal Code sections 34 (common intention), 420 (cheating), and 419 (cheating by personation). The inquiry is currently in progress.
The victim reported to the police after realising that the promised returns and investment amount had not materialised, according to PTI.
Meanwhile, in another incident, according to an ANI report, the Bandra Kurla Police have registered a case against an unknown individual for allegedly sending a threatening email to the office of the US consulate general in Mumbai.
