BI men assaulted

BUREAU of Immigration (BI) agents were assaulted and chased with sharp objects and machetes as they effected the arrest of 30 undocumented Indian nationals at Capitol Estate in Diliman, Quezon City early Wednesday morning.

In his report, BI Intelligence Division Chief Fortunato Manahan, Jr. recounted that their agents were assaulted and chased with machetes by the illegal aliens during the operations.

The aliens, he said, were turned over to the BI’s Legal division pending deportation proceedings.

‘Thankfully no one got hurt.   The incident shows the risks that we encounter during operations. There was even an instance in the past when one of our men were shot in the performance of our duties,’ Manahan lamented.
