CLARK FREEPORT – Bureau of Immigration (BI) agents arrested an Indian national for engaging in illegal money-lending business in Cavite.
BI Intelligence Division Chief Fortunato Manahan Jr. identified the Indian as Bahg Singh, 48, who was arrested by operatives of the BI Intelligence Division Regional Intelligence Operation Unit IV-A and IV-B on Friday, in Barangay Inchican in Silang, Cavite.
Singh was arrested pursuant to a mission order issued by BI Commissioner Jaime Morente, after receiving a formal complaint reporting the Indian’s illegal activities.
The foreigner was reported by the complainant to be running a ‘5-6’ lending business and was said to be always drunk and would commit violent acts.
During the operations, he was caught in the act of collecting money from a store inside the said barangay.
Singh was also found by BI agents to be undocumented and overstaying.
Morente appealed to the public to report foreign nationals who are engaged in illegal activities in their community.
“We remain relentless in our drive to deport foreign nationals who blatantly disregard our laws,” said Morente.
Singh will be temporarily detained at the BI Warden Facility in Bicutan, Taguig City, pending the resolution of the deportation case filed against him.
