Nothing suspicious was found with either of them during interrogation. The senior police officer said that both were taken into custody in view of the latest developments going on in Afghanistan. Investigation revealed that Mohammad Javed, a resident of Kabul, had come to India in January last month for treatment on a medical visa. He is undergoing treatment at Max Hospital, Delhi. Later he was stuck in India due to the lockdown.
Meanwhile, he was identified with Mohammad Armaan, a resident of Darbhanga. Mohammad Armaan's family migrated from Afghanistan two generations ago and settled in Bihar. In police interrogation, Mr. Javed told that he had run out of money during the lockdown. Due to which he met his friend Mohd. Had started living in Darbhanga with Armaan. During this time Javed's visa had expired. However, due to Corona infection, the period of the said visa has been extended by two months.
Javed had told that Javed wanted to go to Kabul before the validity of the visa expired. Since at present there is no direct flight from Delhi to Afghan. So he had planned to go to Kabul via Dubai. To go to Delhi Javed and Mohd. Armaan had reached Patna airport on Thursday night. Javed's documents were checked by CISF personnel at Patna airport before catching the flight. On the basis of visa expiry and suspicion, the CISF personnel stopped them from traveling and handed them over to the Airport Police Station.
