A Chinese national was nabbed by the Sashastra Seema Bal (SSB) personnel while trying to enter India from Nepal in West Bengal’s Siliguri.

The Chinese national has been identified as Shiring Dorji.

27-year-old Dorji was nabbed when he was trying to enter India through the Panitanki border in Khadibadi block near Siliguri on Sunday.

He is the sixth Chinese national arrested while they were trying to enter the state through different borders.

After intercepting Dorji, the SSB found fake Aadhaar and PAN cards on him and he was handed over to Khadibadi police.

Police also said that the man had three ATM cards of Indian banks, mobile phones, and some Indian and Chinese currency.

Dorji was produced before a Siliguri court and sent to police custody.

“This entry of Chinese people into India is becoming an alarming trend and we need to be more careful about that. We are also trying to know whether he came alone or if there were some other people who came with him,” a senior district police officer said.
