Hyderabad: Two Rohingya refugees were arrested for allegedly staying illegally in the Rajendranagar area using fake Aadhaar Card, PAN card, and other documents.

The accused have been identified as Abdul Munaf (31) alias Ayan Ansari, a resident of Chintalmetand and Hafiz Ahmed (34) of MM Pahadi in Rajendranagar. While Ansari was working as a laborer, Hafiz was a fish seller. The duo was apprehended on July 5.

The accused Abdul Munnaf and Hafiz Ahmed had come into India by crossing the India-Bangladesh border. Their wives Noor Khalima and Shaik Rofika are absconding, police said.

Based on a tip-off, the police raided their houses late on Monday. Inquiries revealed that Abdul came to India in 2014 and took shelter in Punjab, while Hafiz, who came in 2018, stayed in Mumbai. Subsequently, they went to New Delhi and obtained a United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) Certificate.

Later, they worked with various firms as laborers. Since the company authorities would ask for Aadhaar cards, they obtained counterfeit documents greasing the palms of agents.

Similarly, they had also obtained PAN cards and other documents.

Police seized Ansari's UNHCR card and an Aadhaar card. During searches at the home of other accused, police recovered voter ID card, PAN card, bank account passbooks, a debit card, Aadhaar card in the name of Jameel Biswas, marriage certificate, HP gas connection documents, driving licence, birth certificates, among others.
