9 textile mill workers were detained for allegedly staying in India without legitimate documents
24 November 2021, Mumbai:
In Maharashtra's Thane district, nine Bangladeshi nationals were detained for allegedly staying in the country without proper passports. These individuals worked in a textile unit in an industrial complex in Saravali, according to police sources.
According to media sources, it is still unclear why the mill management selected them or if their credentials and histories were checked.
The offender has been charged under the Indian Passport Act and the Foreign Nationals Act, according to the station house officer of Kongaon police station.
All of the defendants are from Bangladesh's Chittagong area. It's worth noting that unauthorized foreign employees were discovered in Tirupur clothing manufacturing a few months ago. More than 20 Bangladeshi nationals who entered India illegally through West Bengal have been apprehended in Tirupur in recent months.
MP Muthurathinam, President of the Tirupur Exporters and Manufacturers Association, remarked at the time that it was past time for a framework to be developed to maintain track of guest workers. "Right present, there is no registration system."
They come here and stay in the accommodations of their choice. Some people relocate to Coimbatore, Erode, or Karur. As a result, a state-wide registration of foreign workers must be established. The state government should issue them with an identification card.
