In a bizarre incident, the Bengaluru police on Monday said they have arrested a 19-year-old Pakistani girl and a 26-year-old man for illegally bringing a Pakistani girl to India and living with her in the city.
The police said the woman has been identified as Iqra Jeewani, who they said married a man from Uttar Pradesh and the man has been identified as Mulayam Singh Yadav, a native of Uttar Pradesh who was working as a security guard in Bengaluru.
As per reports, the online ludo game brought Mulayam Singh Yadav in contact with a Pakistani girl. They fell in love and decided to get married. As it was tough for the girl to reach India, Mulayam brought her in via Nepal for marriage.
The arrests came after the state intelligence bureau received a tip-off that a Pakistani national had entered India without valid documents and was living in Bengaluru.
The police further said Yadav had been living in Bengaluru for nearly seven years and was working as a security guard. They said Yadav did not know Jeewani was from Pakistan. He later came to know she was from Hyderabad in the neighbouring country.
Meanwhile, the Bellandur police said a case has been filed under Section 7(2) of the Foreigners Act and sections 420, 465, 468, and 471 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). Reddy has also been booked for not collecting details.
