CBI briefs Kumaraswamy regarding alleged hiring of illegal infiltrators in Bengaluru metro

According to a story published by Times Now, Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has briefed Karnataka Chief Minister, HD Kumaraswamy and Deputy CM G Parameshwara to investigate how the illegal Bangladeshis managed to get jobs as security officials in Bengaluru metro rail. The development came after, English news channel Times Now aired a sting about the matter. The sting operation suggested that illegal Bangladeshis infiltrators have landed important security related jobs in Bengaluru metro rail.

Notably, a Metro official had too told Kumaraswamy earlier that they have told outsourcing agents to ensure that maximum people they provide should be locals and records must be verified well.

He had told the Karnataka CM that the IB had given them a report that Bangladeshis had joined. “We have informed the agencies as well to verify the same and ensure that maximum locals are hired.”

The investigation by Times Now further suggested towards a illegal ID card racket that has been helping the infiltrators to pose as Indian citizens.

Many have alleged that illegal Bangladeshis were being “cultivated” as paid vote bank. ​Last month, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh had indicated that the Centre would begin action against illegal immigrants in Karnataka.
