I paid BSF Rs.2000 to enter India: Ranaghat rape accused


Ludhiana: In a startling revelation, Mohammad Habibul an illegal Bangladeshi migrant who was one of the seven people arrested in the Ranaghat nun gang rape case, has told the Ludhiana police that he gained entry into India by paying a mere bribe of Rs.2000 to a BSF jawan in the border.

The revelations by the arrested Bangladeshi immigrants during their interrogation have revealed how security personnel, entrusted with the job of guarding our borders, were letting in criminals from the neighbouring country for a petty amount. “Nahi sahab humne aisa kuch nahi kiya, bas choti-moti chori ki hai (No sir, we did not do this (gang rape). We were just involved in petty thefts),” claimed Mohammad Habibul, while talking to the media.

Salim Sheik, one of the prime accused in West Bengal nun gang rape case, was arrested from a Mumbai slum. Police sources said some illegal Bangladeshis also slip into Nepal where they secure passports on forged documents
