Chinese nationals apprehended in India

Earlier in November 2021, the Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI) had seized over 80 kg gold worth nearly Rs 40 crore, being smuggled into the country by concealing it inside imported machinery parts at the airport in Delhi, according to an official statement. At that time, four foreign nationals -- two South Koreans, one Chinese and a Taiwanese – were apprehended in the case, it said.

In an intelligence operation code-named ‘molten metal’, several Indian and foreign (Chinese, Taiwanese, South-Korean) nationals were suspected to be indulging in smuggling gold into India from Hong Kong using the air cargo route, identified, the DRI said.

Meanwhile, Border Security Force (BSF) in June 2021 had nabbed a Chinese intruder who was attempting to enter India through the Bangladesh border. The Chinese national, identified as Han Junwe, allegedly tried to stealthily cross the international boundary between India-Bangladesh and attempted to run away when sighted by the BSF at the Malik Sultanpur outpost. The infiltrator was apprehended and brought to Border outpost Mohadipur for questioning, where he divulged sensational details. 

As per the BSF statement, the Chinese intruder claimed to be a resident of Hubei province and revealed that he had arrived in Dhaka on June 2 where he stayed with a Chinese friend, on a business visa. He then moved to Chapainawabganj district in Bangladesh and stayed at a hotel on June 8 before attempting to cross the international border.
