M’sian with expired passport held in India

NEW DELHI: A Malaysian, who spent two years at a village in the state of Uttar Pradesh after his passport expired, was arrested by the police last month.

Rajpur police nabbed Mohd Hashim Abdul Kasim, of Perak, on Sept 30, following a tip-off by local villagers that a foreigner was residing at their village in Budaun district for several months.

Rajpur police station officer Ramdeep Singh told Bernama yesterday that Mohd Hashim could be charged in court soon.

According to police investigations, the Malaysian’s family was of Indian origin and hailed from the nearby Azamgarh district, where his father was born.

However, the family migrated to Malaysia and Mohd Hashim was born in Perak. He married a woman from Azamgarh and was a frequent traveller to the village.
