The Navi Mumbai police have arrested two Bangladeshi nationals for committing theft at a temple in Kharghar in January and seized Rs 80,000 in cash and stolen murtis from them, a top official said on Tuesday.
Addressing a press conference here, Navi Mumbai Police Commissioner Bipin Kumar Singh said three cash boxes, some cash and murtis were stolen from the ISKCON temple in Kharghar on January 31, 2022.
Officials of the Central Crime Unit of the Navi Mumbai police worked on various leads after scanning CCTV footage and taking into account intelligence inputs, and zeroed in on the accused, who are facing separate charges for illegally entering Bharat, he said.
The duo, ‘Raju’ Farhat Sheikh, 26, and Amirul alias ‘Akash Mannan’ Khan, 23, was arrested from Navi Mumbai on February 14, Singh said. The police seized Rs 80,000 in cash and murtis stolen from the temple from the accused, who illegally entered Bharat from Bangladesh through the West Bengal border with the help of an agent, he said. It was initially reported that Rs 1.5 lakhs had been stolen from the temple, so Rs. 70,000 still remains untraced.
Action has been taken against them under the Passport Act and other relevant laws, the police commissioner said.
Cases of temple theft and house breaking have been registered against the duo in Mumbai and also Ahmedabad and they were arrested in some of them earlier, the police said. The accused, who were sent to police remand by a local court after their arrest, are now in jail under judicial custody.
Soft state, broken judiciary
This incident shows how soft Bharat still is from a law & order and internal security perspective, despite significant improvement in combatting external threats and terrorism since 2014. And a lot of this boils down to a broken justice system which has been hijacked by our Hinduphobic elites to prioritize rights of illegal immigrants and criminals over those of common citizens. The two illegal immigrants from Bangladesh had committed multiple crimes, were even arrested earlier, but were still let off?
What is the guarantee that they won’t be released on bail this time too, as the cases against them wind through our labyrinthine legal system? A bevy of high-profile lawyers always seem to magically appear for such criminals, pleading for clemency and soft sentencing, and many judges appear to seek approval and validation from the Hinduphobic secular-liberal lobby.
How many such illegal aliens that are arrested by police ever get deported? What have we have done to severely punish and break the syndicates that facilitate entry of these illegals into the country? At least 2 crore illegal Bangladeshi immigrants live in Bharat as per conservative govt. estimates (some claim double that number). The problem is so acute that death penalty is necessary to instill fear into such illegals who enter our country and commit crimes. A pan-Bharat NRC is long overdue to identify the illegal immigrants who have burrowed deep into our cities with fake documentation and political patronage.
Assuming fake Hindu identities by criminals and Islamists is another epidemic that needs to be tackled firmly – an example has to be made out of a few, so that this rampant misuse ends. For all we know, Times of India, NDTV and The Wire may well publish the names of these two thieves as ‘Raju’ and ‘Akash’.
Judicial reform and reclaiming our Republic from the hands of the Hinduphobic Nehruvian elite are the most important challenges facing us today. Can our justice system, babus and governments put rights of Bharatiya citizens first?
