Delhi: International gang foreign passport busted, 8 arrested

The Delhi Police Crime Branch has busted a gang involved in a fake passport and recovered 43 Indian and Nepali passports. During this operation, the police have arrested 8 people. A senior police officer said that this gang used labs for printing and preparing fake passports and fake stickers. Foreign Canadian and Schengen visa stickers have also been recovered. The officer further said the gang targeted young job aspirants from Nepal who wanted to get jobs in foreign countries. They allured them initially in Nepal by giving them false assurance of providing them with a good job in Canada. Later, they took an initial amount from them at Nepal itself and then used to call them to Delhi and take their passport for allegedly depositing them in the Embassy of Canada for the purpose of applying for the visa.

Never asked to impose Hindi over regional languages: Amit Shah

Union Home Minister Amit Shah clarified that he had only requested people to learn Hindi as their second language and imposed it over any other regional language. Shah said, "I come from a non-Hindi state of Gujarat. If some people want to do politics, it is their choice". Earlier, in an event on Hindi Diwas, Shah stated, "While diversity in languages is the strength of our nation, a national language is needed so that foreign languages and cultures don't overpower our own. The govt would take Hindi Diwas outside Delhi and would celebrate a Hindi Saptah across the country. Hindi is the heart and soul of the freedom struggle". Src: https://bit.ly/2klKoLq
