According to authorities, the Border Security Force apprehended a 35-year-old Chinese man along the India-Bangladesh border today. He was nabbed in West Bengal's Malda district near the border for "suspicious activities," according to authorities.
A Chinese passport with a Bangladeshi visa, a laptop, and three SIM cards was seized from the individual, identified as Han Junwei by security officers.
"He was apprehended about 7 a.m. We took him to the Kaliachak post and notified other agencies. They are questioning him " NDTV spoke with a top officer who did not wish to reveal identity.
According to the officer, the Chinese "intruder" did not appear to speak English, thus they had difficulties talking with him at first." A security officer who knows Mandarin was then called. He is being questioned by intelligence agencies now," explained the officer.
Malda has a border with Bangladesh that is one of the most porous in the world. The region is frequently utilised for drug, weapons, livestock, and illegal immigration smuggling.
The South Bengal Frontier of the Border Security Force (BSF) monitors the India-Bangladesh border in the Malda area.
Security authorities are investigating whether Han Junwei was alone or if others like him infiltrated Indian territory. The authorities have also questioned him about the reason for his trip to Bangladesh.
Another police officer stated that more facts and the grounds for his incursion into the Indian side will be revealed after the (questioning) session concludes.
