Bangalore: Karnataka police have arrested a 19-year-old Pakistani girl, who allegedly forged her identity to stay in India illegally.
Police arrested Iqra Jeevani and handed her over to FRRO officials. She was later sent to a state home for women.
Bellandur police also arrested Mulayam Singh Yadav, a 25-year-old security guard from Uttar Pradesh, whom the Pakistani girl married after meeting him through a dating app a few months ago.
According to the police, he had entered India through the porous India-Nepal border.
Investigations revealed that Yadav befriended Iqra on a dating app and they decided to get married.
The security guard had called her to Nepal a few months ago where they got married. The couple crossed into India to reach Birgunj in Bihar and from there reached Patna.
Yadav and Iqra later reached Bangalore and stayed in a rented house in Junnasandra where Yadav started working as a security guard from September 2022.
He even got an Aadhaar card for Iqra after she changed her name to Rava Yadav and applied for an Indian passport.
Iqra came under the scanner of the central intelligence agencies when she tried to contact her family in Pakistan. Central agencies alerted Karnataka intelligence. Based on the information, the police entered the house and arrested the couple.
Sources said further investigations were on to check whether the Pakistani was part of any spy network.
