The police got information that some African nationals were illegally residing in the Uttam Nagar area. Acting on the tip-off, a team of six policemen was formed to nab the accused.

The accused foreigners were apprehended by the police in the area of Uttam Nagar Police Station at the Najafgarh Road, near Nawada, Delhi.
