National anthem trips up Bangladeshi national with Indian passport in Coimbatore | Coimbatore News



COIMBATORE: A Bangladeshi national with an Indian passport was caught at the city airport and later arrested on Monday, after immigration officials asked him to sing the national anthem, which he failed to do.
Police identified him as G Anwar Hussain, 28, a native of Balpur in Bangladesh. “He landed at the city airport from Sharjah on an Air Arabia flight. He produced an Indian passport, which showed he was a resident of Kolkata,” a police officer said. Since he didn’t land in Kolkata, officials became suspicious.
The officer said, “He gave contradictory answers. He also produced his birth certificate and Aadhaar card, both issued by the Government of India. Immigration officer M Krishnasree suddenly asked Hussain to sing the national anthem. Unable to sing the same, Hussain admitted that he was a native of Bangladesh.”
Preliminary inquiry revealed that Hussain came to Avinashi in Tirupur district of Tamil Nadu in 2018 and worked as a tailor with an apparel unit till November 2020. “During this period, he visited Bengaluru and forged a birth certificate with the help of a few agents. Later, he obtained the Aadhaar card,” the officer said.
In December 2020, he said, Hussain secured the Indian passport from Kolkata by submitting the Aadhaar card and other forged documents. “He then left for the United Arab Emirates, where he worked as a tailor. He returned on Monday with a plan to settle down at Avinashi,” the officer said.
The city airport authorities handed over Hussain to the Peelamedu police, who registered a case against him under relevant sections of the Foreigners Act and the Passport Act. Police arrested him on Monday night and produced him before a judicial magistrate, who remanded him in judicial custody. Hussain was subsequently lodged in the Puzhal Central Prison in Chennai.
