KATHMANDU — The Metropolitan Police Crime Division on Monday raided the Tribhuvan International Airport and the Department of Foreign Employment to investigate into cases of migration frauds.
The MPCD team also detained two women who were leaving the Airport for a foreign employment, suspecting genuineness of their documents.
The women, who were leaving the country for the first time for overseas employment, had re-entry stamped visa.
The two women were detained as they had never been abroad earlier, but had possessed labour permits issued for the second time, the Rastriya Samachar Samiti has quoted MPCD Chief SSP Sarvendra Khanalas saying.
According to a police source foreign employment entrepreneurs could be involved in attaining the re-entry stamp on the worker’s visa.
The MPCD, after the arrest at TIA, raided the Foreign Employment Department office and is conducting an investigation at the Tahachal-based Labour Permit Division office.
Police have said that they conducted the raid as an illegal action such as this could have been carried out only with the involvement of department officials.
Likewise, a police team also raided Gaushala-based Himalaya Red-Panda Travel, King Akbar Tour and Travel and City Tour and Travel.
The police have recovered duplicate hologram and permit stickers from the raid.
