6 Bangladeshis get Aadhaar through tout, govt doc

Six Bangladeshis are among eight people  arrested on Sunday for securing Aadhaar cards by forging papers.  

Rubiulla (23), Riyad Khan (25), Mohammed Khokon (20), Ohidulla (29), Mohammed Kalam (34), Robin Althar (23) and Zakir Hussain (28) - all from Murel Ganj Thana, Bangladesh - are said to have illegally entered India by crossing rivers a few years ago. They travelled from Kolkata to Bengaluru by train  and settled in labour colonies in Iblur and Marathahalli. They landed housekeeping jobs in IT firms near Whitefield, a senior police officer.  

They took the help of Saifullah, a tout from  NS Palya, BTM Layout, to  get Aadhaar cards. Saifullah  got  Dr Lokesh, who works at a primary health centre in Bommasandra, to attest documents for the  Bangladeshis. He managed to secure Aadhaar cards for all the  six men and charged them Rs  500 apiece.  

The eight men were arrested in a joint operation by officials of the Unique Identification Authority of India  and the Bellandur police. Officials found that the residential addresses submitted by the suspects were fake.  Saifullah is said to have procured around 50 Aadhaar cards by forging documents. Police are looking into all the cases.  

The suspects, including  Dr Lokesh, were booked under various sections of the  IPC, the IT Act, the Aadhaar Act and under section 149a) (b) of the Foreigners' Act.
