Badaun (Uttar Pradesh), Oct 5(ANI): A 37-year-old Malaysian national was recently detained by Uttar Pradesh Police for overstaying in Badaun district two years after his passport's expiry.

Mohammad Hashim Abdul Kasim belongs to Perak in Malaysia and was nabbed on September 30 following a tip-off by villagers.

Rajpur Police Station officer Ramdeep Singh said police arrested Kasim on behalf of information received from villagers, who were suspicious about Kasim.

"When we checked his passport, we found that it had expired in 2007. The man was also carrying three expired passports," News Strait Times quoted Singh, as saying.

"He is married to a local woman and has six daughters. We have sent him to the district jail in Budaun," Singh added.

Singh further said that Kasim would be charged for his offence.

Kasim was born in Malaysia, but has Indian roots, as his father hailed from Uttar Pradesh's Azamgarh district before migrating to Malaysia. (ANI)
