According to BSF, Chinese spy Han Junwe opened a large hotel named Star-Spring in Gurugram in 2019 with one of his business partners, Sun Jiang. But both were working under the cover of this spy hotel and breaking into the pockets of gullible Indians.
New Delhi: A Chinese spy, who entered India from the Bangladesh border, revealed during strict interrogation that he had smuggled around 1,300 Indian SIM cards into China in the past two years. During questioning with BSF and intelligence agencies, Chinese spy Han Junwe also revealed that these SIM cards in China are being used to hack important accounts in India and in financial frauds.
After about 36 hours of rigorous questioning, the BSF handed over Chinese spy Han Junwe to the West Bengal police. West Bengal police will now initiate further legal proceedings. In this regard, a case was registered against him at a police station in the Kaliachak neighborhood of the Malda district.
According to the BSF, Han Junwe opened a large hotel in Gurugram in 2019 with one of his business partners, Sun Jiang, named Star-Spring. But both were working under the cover of this spy hotel and breaking into the pockets of gullible Indians. According to the BSF, both were buying Indian SIM cards on the basis of false documents. After that, they would hide these SIM cards in their underwear and take them to China. In China, these SIM cards have been used to hack accounts. However, the BSF did not disclose what type of Indian accounts were hacked by Han Junwe and Sun Jiang. And finally who is behind this hack and what is the purpose.
But during interrogation of BSF, Han Junwe confessed that these SIM cards were also used for financial fraud. They stole money from the slot machines of gullible Indians. According to the BSF, some time ago, Sun Jiang was arrested by the UP Police Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) for fraudulently purchasing SIM cards. Han Junwe and his wife are also co-accused in this case. The process of issuing a Blue Corner Notice against Han had already started. But before that, as they were entering India illegally through the Bangladesh border, the BSF caught Han near Sultanpur BOP (Border Out Post), which is an outpost in Malda district.
During questioning, Han said that he first came to Hyderabad in 2010. Delhi-Gurugram came three times after 2019. Four times he came on an Indian visa for business. His current passport was issued by the Chinese province of Hubei from this year, that is to say in January 2021. He has a Bangladesh visa on his passport. This is the reason why he reached Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh, on June 2. After stopping there with a friend, Han reached the Sona-Masjid area of the Nawabganj district of the printing press in Bangladesh. On the morning of June 10, after staying in a hotel here, Han attempted to infiltrate West Bengal’s Malda region from the banks of a river on the Indo-Bangladesh border, but was caught by staff of the BSF which patrolled there.
Besides the passport, BSF found an Apple laptop, 02 mobile iPhone, 01 Bangladeshi SIM, 01 Indian SIM, 02 Chinese SIM, 2 USB keys, 03 batteries, two small torches, 05 money transaction machines, 02 ATM cards , looking for a Chinese intruder. US dollars, Bangladeshi takas and Indian currency were recovered.
A BSF official said the Chinese national’s electronic equipment was under a thorough investigation to find out which Chinese intelligence agency he was working for.
