London, Aug.23 (ANI): A curry house boss, who is under investigation for supplying illegal immigrants as staff for restaurants in Britain, has revealed that he charged 10,000 pounds from his clients for recruiting a person of Bangladeshi origin, as opposed to 20 or 30 pounds a day for a person of East European origin.

"From Bangladesh I charge 10,000 pounds. They come as staff. We've got four restaurants," Belal Rouf said.

Rouf's revelation came shortly after police nabbed a coach full of foreign slave workers.

According to News of the World, nearly a third of the 44 Bangladeshis were suspected illegal immigrants and were willing to toil 12 hours a day for just 1.60 pounds an hour in cash.

Rouf said he and his partner Forid Miah provided illegal workers up and down the country from their curry restaurants in Thetford, Norfolk, and east London.

Rouf bragged he and Miah could deliver 1,000 workers at short notice.

"I just make one phone call in London and you give me one address and I'll bombard you with a thousand people," Rouf said.

Rouf, who drives a flash new Mercedes CLS coupe and has his own house, is being probed at the Home Office detention centre in Longstanton, Cambridgeshire by officers from the UK Border Agency.

"I can get you people. Illegals, it's about 20 pounds a day. They will work 12 hours a day. These guys are poor people. They're in London, they're in Luton walking round with nothing to do. You pay them cash in hand. Just give them 20 pounds in hand and accommodation. Anything will do. As long as they've got somewhere to sleep, somewhere to bathe, somewhere to go to the toilet," said Roufe. (ANI)
