Attempting to enter India from Nepal, two Chinese nationals were apprehended by the immigration department in Raxaul, East Champaran district in Bihar, authorities said on Sunday.
The two Chinese men were taken to the immigration office for inquiry after the incident, which happened in front of the Indian Customs office, according to an official statement. Zhao Jing and Fu Cong, two Chinese nationals, were both found to be in possession of invalid documents throughout the investigation.
The 39-year-old man who is telling his name Jing and the other 28-year-old man who is identified as Cong, both come from Jiangxi, China.
The Raxaul Immigration Department detained the two Chinese nationals on July 2 as they tried to enter India from Nepal without a visa, according to the statement. Both of them were sent back to Nepal after their initial border crossing after having a warning issued in their passports signaling entry refusal. Before attempting to enter India, they tried to urge that they obtain an Indian visa.
According to a report, immigration officers stationed at the border have not ruled out the potential of espionage as the cause of the Chinese citizens’ unauthorised entry into Indian territory from the other side of the border.
An official was quoted as adding that the accused had strange behaviour and that their claims were inconsistent and self-contradictory despite the fact that one of them spoke English fluently.
Earlier, the Sashastra Seema Bal (SSB) had detained a Chinese national at the Indo-Nepal border at Kharibari, in the Darjeeling district of West Bengal. The culprit, 39-year-old Yongxin Peng, was spotted with Chinese products and was detained by Bengal police on Wednesday. He was reportedly unable to understand Hindi or English when he was questioned.
Another Chinese person was detained by the SSB in February while attempting to enter India from Nepal without proper documentation. In the Uttar Pradesh district of Lakhimpur, this arrest took place.
