A doctor from Bangladesh allegedly travelling without valid visa was arrested aboard Howrah-New Delhi Rajdhani Express at Dhanbad railway station by the state railway police on Saturday. The police said that the doctor could be mentally stressed as he claimed to have gone to Kolkata to meet the West Bengal Chief Minister mamta Banerjee, and now wanted to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi. His family has been informed.

According to the police, Mohammad Jameel Choudhary was taken in custody by the GRP following a row over travelling without ticket aboard Rajdhani Express. The train, 12301 Howrah-New Delhi Rajdhani Express, had left Howrah on Saturday evening as per usual time. When the TTE began checking ticket in the B-6 compartment, the man in question could not produce a valid ticket. When the police escort arrived and sought his ID, he showed his passport. However, there was no visa. He was taken into custody and de-boarded at Dhanbad railway station, the next stop of the train, said a police officer.

On the basis of his passport, the man was identified as a resident of Komila district in Bangladesh. During initial questioning, he made claims like he had gone to meet West Bengal Chief Minister in Kolkata and now wanted to get the blessings of the Prime Minister. His claims are being verified, but it appears that he was mentally stressed. He has been sent to jail under the Passport Act for not travelling without proper documents, said Superintendent of Railway Police (Dhanbad) P Janardhan.

Janardhan added that the police have got in touch with his family and informed them about the developments. It has come to light that his father too is a doctor. So far, nothing incriminating has been found from his possession. He used to work at Indira Gandhi Memorial Hospital in Maldives in the past, but had left the job. The exact purpose of his visit to Kolkata is being inquired into, he said. Further investigations are on.

    This is not the first time a illegal Bangladeshi caught in India if we move to the suburbs of Mumbai or to any of the ladies bar or construction site in Navi Mumbaii we can find laks of these parasites staying and doing illegal work they are behind pros ution and other trades. As they pass of as Bengalis and easily procure Ration card and other documents with the help of touts and agents they claim to be Indian citizens . These guys earn money India and sent it back home which is been used to fund terror activities. The Govt and the intelligence agencies should keep an eye for these parasites as they are making home in areas around BARC in Mankhurd . And major Financial Cities which could be harmful to us as the anti national elements and terrorist can use them to the full benefit of gathering intelligence of our establishments and can use them in creating confusion or disturbance among the society. so keep an eye on these Bangladeshis and not to just deport them but to punish.

      Why bother with a single man or something , unless he did some terrorist act . There are 3-4 crore illegal Bangladeshi in India . One can spot them in every major city , some even sport Hindu names in workplaces.
