The Bengaluru police arrested a 26-year-old man on Monday for illegally bringing a Pakistani girl to India and living with her in the city. The accused, Mulayam Singh Yadav, a native of Uttar Pradesh and a security guard in Bengaluru, had come in contact with the minor girl in Pakistan’s Hyderabad through an online game. He had asked her to come to Bengaluru so they could get married, and the couple was living in the labourer quarters at Bellandur police station limits. A first information report (FIR) has been registered under Section 7 of the Foreigners Act against Govinda Reddy, the owner of the property where the couple was staying, for failing to inform police about the foreigner staying illegally in his building. Singh has been booked under Sections 420 (cheating), 495 (concealing marriage), 468 (forgery) and 471 (forging documents) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
