'He took admission in Darul Uloom University in 2008, studied and stayed there till 2012. During this period, he prepared forged documents to obtain an Indian passport and using the same passport he applied for visa to travel to Saudi Arabia and went there in April 2013,' the Special Cell said in its chargesheet
New Delhi: Bangladeshi nationals, who are involved in terror activities, are emerging as the biggest threat to national security.
According to the investigating agencies probing terror-related cases, these Bangladeshis, who are acting as sleeper cells of terror outfits, are easily getting Indian identity be it Aadhar card, PAN card or Voter Identification cards, helping them to easily bluff the Indian authorities.
With just a college identity card, Bangladeshi nationals are able to get all the documents, proving their fake Indian nationality.
The National Investigation Agency (NIA) and Delhi Police’s Special Cell probes have revealed the modus operandi used by the accused involved in terror activities.
Recently, Delhi Police’s anti-terror unit Special Cell filed a chargesheet, accessed by MyNation, against a Bangladeshi national residing in India for the past 10 years.
The accused Md Umar Faruk, originally a Bangladeshi, turned Indian, by providing necessary documents as proof.
In its chargesheet filed last week, the Special Cell has claimed that the accused Umar Faruk managed all documents with an identity card of a Darul Uloom University.
“He took admission in Darul Uloom University in 2008, studied and stayed there till 2012. During this period, he prepared forged documents to obtain an Indian passport and using the same passport he applied for visa to travel to Saudi Arabia and went there in April 2013,” the Special Cell said in its chargesheet.
Umar Faruk got his first Indian Identity from Punjab National Bank, where he opened an account on his university identity card. Later, he used the bank account details to get all the Indian documents including Aadhar card.
According to the Special Cell, from Umar Faruk’s possession, a total of 11 documents were recovered, including passport, Driving Licence, Voter ID and PSU bank accounts’ details.
Similarly, in another case, NIA filed a chargesheet in Pune ABT case against five Bangladeshi nationals residing in India involved in anti-national activity. A chargesheet was filed under three Acts including the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act.
“NIA filed a chargesheet against five Bangladeshi nationals Mohammed Habibur Rahman Habib, Ripen Hossain, Hannan Anwar Khan, Mohd Hassanali Mohd Amirali and Azarali Subhanalla Islam. All were living in Pune, aiding and harbouring members of a Bangladesh based terrorist organisation ‘Ansarullah Bangla Team’ in Pune. Interestingly, we took maximum time to prove that they are Bangladeshis as all had documents like Aadhar, PAN cards, election cards etc to prove their Indian nationality,” a senior NIA official said.
“They had fraudulently obtained Indian PAN Cards, Aadhaar Cards, election cards and ration cards in fictitious names with fake/forged documents. They had used the Aadhar and PAN cards for procuring Indian SIM cards, for opening bank accounts and to also seek employment in India,” NIA official added.
Ansarullah Bangla Team is a terrorist outfit based in Bangladesh and is a front organisation of Al-Qaida. It has been banned by the Bangladesh government following which it has renamed itself and has been operating as Ansar Al Islam.
