“We perhaps need to verify all Aadhaar cards, as we have a small population and such illegal migration raises serious issues,” Mr. Singh said.
All the nine Myanmarese with fake Aadhaar cards are from Yangon state in Myanmar, and two of them are into trafficking,” S. Ibomcha, Tengnoupal district’s superintendent of police, told reporters.
Referring to the arrest of the nine Myanmar nationals, Manipur Chief Minister Nongthombam Biren Singh on Tuesday evening said the possibility of foreigners moving around with fake Aadhaar was a serious issue.
The police also tracked down two Moreh-based traders — one into software and the other into online ticketing — who had forged the nine Aadhaar cards between them.
