The Chinese national, Han Junwe, was nabbed by a BSF patrol party from the Malda district of West Bengal on Thursday (June 10).

After a preliminary interrogation, the BSF handed over the Chinese intruder to the local police station on Friday.

According to the BSF, the Chinese national used forged Indian documents to carry 1,300 Indian SIM cards to China. His associates smuggled the SIM card into China, concealing it in their undergarments.

“These SIM cards were used to hack into accounts and perpetrate other forms of financial fraud. Their goal was to defraud people by using SIM cards to withdraw money from ATMs,” said BSF in a statement.
