Statesman News Service | Meerut |


Anti Terrorism Squad( ATS) arrested a Bangladeshi and two others from Muradnagar of district Ghaziabad and Deoband on Tuesday . The Bangladeshi was found possessing fake documents which were allegedly provided by the other two.

The operation was carried out by ATS seeking help of special task force and area police.

The team arrested from Muradnagar Yusuf Ali alias Nazarul of Bangladesh while Wasim Ahmad and Ahsan Ahmad from Deoband . They also recovered computers, fake Aadhar cards and driving licenses, laptop, printers and semi finished documents including photocopies of passports from their possession.

Yusuf Ali was staying here on fake passport and documents . On the tip off the other two were arrested from Deoband with the equipments needed to make forged documents .

SSP of Saharanpur Babloo Kumar has said that who so ever would be found involved in helping anti national elements would face action , even if they are from the police or government departments . The SSP has also formed teams to identify and nab those who are involved in making and providing fake passports .

UP and Kolkata police had arrested a few Bangladeshi from Deoband, Lucknow and Delhi who were staying in different parts of the country on passports made through fake documents which were made in Deoband.

Officials suspect that arrested Wasim and Ahsan were also involved in making fake passports and other documents to help Bangladeshis to stay in the region with fake identity.

This could as well be linked with Abdullah Ul Maamoon who was arrested from Kutesra village of Muzaffarnagar on August 6 last year by the ATS. Abdullah was associated with Bangladesh based terrorist organisation Ansarullah Bangla and was living in Deoband for a long time . He also had managed to get his passport from there .

Another Bangladeshi Rajaul Rahman was arrested from Delhi by Kolkata police .

He also lived in Deoband- before shifting to Delhi.
