While the smuggling racket between Sri Lanka and India is nothing new, estimates reveal that it has gone up five-fold in the past couple of months.
New Delhi, July 20: The National Investigation Agency today conducted a search at Trichy (Tiruchirappalli) in Tamil Nadu. The searches were carried out at a special camp which lodges foreigners with criminal records.
The camp houses over 100 foreigners from Sri Lanka, Bulgaria, Russia, United Kingdom, Bangladesh and Kenya. It was from this camp that last year a Bulgarian national had managed to escape. In 2019 a Nigerian national lodged at this camp too had escaped.
