Saudi national living illegally in Bengaluru held | Bengaluru News – Times of India

BENGALURU: Acting on a tipoff, Sampigehalli police arrested a Saudi national living illegally in the city and recovered three passports, including an Indian one, and other government documents like Aadhaar card, voter ID and driving licence from him.
The accused is Osama Mohammed Dheeb, presently living alone in Hegdenagar in Sampigehalli. As per the accused’s statement, he came to the city in 2006 on a student visa and worked with different private companies under different names. Police said they need to question him more on his activities.
According to police, local residents passed information, saying that the accused was behaving suspiciously. “Not mingling with neighbours, not opening door for locals and improper answers to BBMP staff during Covid-19 visits got the locals to alert us. We raided his house and were shocked to see that he had three passports. Two of them were issued by Saudi Arabia and one Indian passport with an address in Chennai, Tamil Nadu. On searching more, we found an Aadhaar card, a voter ID and a driving licence issued at Yelahanka RTO and other fake documents,” an investigating officer said.
Dheeb arrived in the city from Riyadh on January 9, 2006 on a student visa, which expired on January 8, 2007.
“We have taken him into custody. We will check his mobile phone and other gadgets for possible clues on his illegal activities, if any,” an investigating officer said.
