Perundurai police inspector A Thangam received a complaint from A Ujjal alias Mijamul Haji, 26, of Panikkampalayam on August 19, stating that four Bangladeshi nationals were plotting to cause communal clashes between Hindus and Muslims in the area. “The complainant mentioned in the petition that the four men were planning to demolish a Hindu temple or to steal the ornaments of the deity,” the inspector said.
Inquiries revealed that the complainant was involved in providing workers to construction sites in and around Perundurai. “The complainant stated that one of the four men, identified as Jahangir, had approached him for work one year ago. Jahangir produced his Aadhaar and voter’s identity cards,” the inspector said. He approached Ujjal one month ago seeking work for three others — Mujam Mondal, Ebadhul Ali and Aakash.
Police found that Aadhaar and voter’s identity cards were fake.
On July 28, the police had arrested ten Bangladeshi nationals for staying without valid passports and visas. “The four men frequently met after the arrest of the 10 Bangladeshi nationals.
