INTELLIGENCE agents from the Bureau of Immigration (BI) arrested five Indian nationals caught illegally staying in the country.
BI spokesperson Dana Sandoval said the aliens were apprehended in Davao City last February 4 during operations conducted by operatives from the BI Intelligence Division Mindanao Task Group (MTG) headed by Intelligence Officer Melody Gonzales.
The BI agents acted on complaints from Davao City residents alleging that the Indians were engaged in the notorious “5-6” lending scheme.
It was learned that four of the Indians are overstaying aliens while one is an illegal entrant, having no record of arrival.
They were identified as Darshna Devi, Gurbhej Singh Toor, Lovepreet Singh Waring, Amarjit Singh Toor, and Sukhmander Singh.
BI acting intelligence division chief Fortunato Manahan, Jr. said the Indians were arrested at their residences in Bgy. Cabantian, Buhangin, Davao City after they failed to present proof of their legal residence in the country.
