The Chinese national who was intercepted by security forces in West Bengal's Malda district had taken around 1,300 Indian SIMs to China using fake documents, said Border Security Force (BSF) on Friday. As per a statement issued by BSF, 35-year-old Chinese national, Han Junwe, used to hide the SIM cards in undergarments and send them to China.

"Han Junwe has been a wanted criminal and upon thorough interrogation, shocking facts have come to fore that he has taken around 1,300 Indian SIMs to China using fake documents. Through his associate, he used to hide SIM in undergarments and send them to China," BSF said. On Friday, BSF said a search of the electronic equipment belonging to Junwe suggested that he was working in India for a Chinese intelligence agency.

"In the electronic equipment found from Han Junwe, many facts can be found that he was working in India for which Chinese Intelligence Agency," the statement said, adding that when this will be investigated in depth, many 'startling' details may surface.

The BSF had arrested him on June 10 while he was trying to cross the Indo-Bangladesh international boundary illegally.
