Two Chinese nationals held in Bihar for allegedly trying to enter India illegally
New Delhi : Two Chinese nationals were arrested by security personnel at the Indo-Nepal border in Bihar's East Champaran district on Saturday night. The suspects have been identified as Zhao Jing and FU Cong, both residents of Jiangxi province in China. As per reports, they were trying to enter India without valid documents.
The Indian customs officers arrested them at Raxaul town at approximately 8.45 pm, as the individuals were making their illegal move into the Indian territory. The motive behind their actions is yet to be established.
East Champaran Superintendent of Police, Kantesh Kumar Mishra, stated that the investigation is ongoing, and the suspects are currently being interrogated to determine the purpose of their illicit entry.
An immigration official, who requested anonymity, revealed that the two individuals displayed inconsistent and self-contradictory statements during the interrogation. While one of them is fluent in English, the precise reason for their illegal movement remains uncertain.
Earlier, the two men had attempted to enter the Indian territory on July 2, then they were released with a warning and advise to get the proper documents to visit India.
Meanwhile, the second such attempt has raised concerns about security at the Indo-Nepal border, and authorities are closely monitoring the progress of the investigation. The arrested individuals are expected to face legal consequences for their illegal actions pending further inquiries.
