A 34-year-old woman from Kyrgyzstan, deported from India for violating visa norms, not only was caught working for the same firm here but also managed to obtain an Indian passport.
Narina Dokturbekova, was arrested at the Kempegowda International Airport on March 21, while she was about to take a flight to Nepal.
Dokturbekova presented her Indian passport at the immigration counter for clearance. When the immigration officials crosschecked her name in their database, they found that she also had a passport of Kyrgyzstan.
She was then apprehended and questioned in detail. She had come to the city from Kyrgyzstan on a business visa, and was illegally working at the marketing division of an adhesive manufacturing company.
In November 2018, the Foreigners Regional Registration Office (FRRO) found her visa violations after which she was deported from the city via Delhi to her home country.
However, Dokturbekova managed to sneak back into India through the porous borders along Nepal and came to Bengaluru on road, joining the same company for work. She then managed to obtain an Aadhar card and PAN card by which she applied for a passport, which was issued later.
She was produced before a court and remanded in judicial custody. The BIAL police have booked Dokturbekova under appropriate sections of Foreigners Act, 1946 and Passport Act, 1967 along with cheating. Further investigations are on to ascertain how she procured other documentation.
