4 Indians in UK held for working illegally

The four Indians now face deportation to India. The four included two men, aged 42 and 48, who had overstayed their visitor visas.

A 46-year-old man was found to be a failed asylum seeker and a woman aged 33 was identified as an illegal entrant to the UK.

All four were released on bail and must now report regularly to an immigration office while the UK Border Agency takes steps to deport them to India.

The company that employed the illegal workers now face a fine of 60,000 pounds.

Besides the four Indians, officials also arrested a 31-year-old Sri Lankan and a 37-year-old Pakistani woman who were found to be failed asylum seekers and did not have the legal right to work in Britain.

Phil Dyer, UK Border Agency East Midlands assistant director, said, “Illegal working is unfair on honest employers who recruit staff with the right to work in the UK and who pay them a proper salary. We will continue to support those companies who seek to comply with the law”.
