Agartala, November 01:  Six Bangladeshi nationals were apprehended by Tripura Police at MBB Airport in Agartala while en route to Kolkata. After an initial inquiry, Abhijit Mandal, the Officer in Charge of the Airport Police Station, disclosed that the individuals were unable to provide valid documents during questioning.

“We received information about some people acting suspiciously at the airport, based on which we detained them. Upon initial investigation, they failed to produce proper documentation and admitted to being Bangladeshi nationals. They claimed to have entered India illegally through Tripura from Bangladesh with the intention of reaching West Bengal via MBB Airport. Consequently, a case has been filed against them under the Indian Passport Act,” he stated. Mandal added that the police have presented them before the court in order to seek police remand.
