BSF arrested a 36-year-old Chinese nationalist in West Bengal after entering India illegally from the India-Bangladesh border.
After hours of interrogation by BSF, the accused Chinese nationalist revealed his name as Han Junwe, a resident of Hubei, China.
BSF, in their investigation, concluded that the accused traveled to Bangladesh on June 2 on a business visa. Although on June 8, he reached Sona Masjid in Chapainawabganj (Bangladesh) and stayed there, he was arrested by BSF on June 10 when he was trying to enter India.
He managed to travel into India through the international border at Malda district, around 500 km north of Kolkata.
According to officials, he was carrying one laptop, three mobiles, Indian, Bangladeshi, and US currency, one Chinese Passport with a Bangladeshi visa, and few electronic gadgets.
As per officials, Junwe, in his interrogation, said he owns a hotel named ‘Star Spring’ in Gurugram and has been to India at least four times since 2010 and had been to Hyderabad, Delhi, and Gurugram.
When he was in China, Jiang, the business partner of Junwe, meanwhile sent him around 10-15 sim cards. Later Jiang was arrested by the UP terrorist squad, and he revealed the name of Junwe and his wife, after which the India visa of Junwe was canceled. He then procured a visa from Nepal and Bangladesh and entered India.
“Interrogation is still going on. We are trying to find out whether he was working for any intelligence agency or any organization, which works against India,” said SS Guleria, DIG BSF (South Bengal Frontier).
“Investigation is going on, and other intelligence agencies have been alerted. We are working together on the case. His laptop is being scanned,” Guleria added.
“Due to the case registered against him, he didn’t get an Indian visa in China. He got a visa from Bangladesh & Nepal to come to India. In the electronic equipment found from him, many facts can be found that he was working in India for Chinese Intelligence Agency,” BSF said
