"The First Additional Magistrate Court judge remanded the four accused, including their Indian accomplice to 14-day police custody to ascertain their purpose of entering India and staying in the city over the last nine months illegally," Bengaluru Additional Commissioner of Police (Crime) S. Ravi told reporters here.


The Pakistani trio from Karachi -- Khasif Shamshuddin, his wife Kiron Gulam Ali, their friend Sameera Abdul Rehman -- and her Indian husband Mohammed Sihad from Kochi in coastal Kerala were arrested on Thursday after they were found staying in a rented house in the southern suburb under fake identities.

The city crime branch learnt that Sihad married Sameera while he was working in Qatar in the Gulf region two years ago despite opposition from her parents.

The four accused reached Patna in Bihar after crossing the Indo-Nepal border from Kathmandu a year ago. They came to Nepal from Qatar via Muscat in Oman.

A case has been registered against the accused under the relevant sections of the Passport Act and the Foreigners' Act.
