According to Champawat SP Lokeshwar Singh Chauhan, Farida Malik was arrested on 12 July 2019 from near the international border in Banbasa. On 5 March 2020, the CJM court found Farida guilty and sentenced him to 4 years rigorous imprisonment. He was lodged in Almora Jail. Farida was later granted bail by the High Court. After this, Farida challenged the order of the CJM in the District Court. On 22 February, the District Court dismissed Farida’s plea and dismissed her bail. Also, NBW was issued against him.
Banbasa police station arrested Farida on Friday evening from Sector-18 of Noida, which has now been sent to Lohaghat jail. Significantly, the Banbasa area along the Indo-Nepal border has always been sensitive. Statistics show that during the last 2 years, 9 foreign nationals have been caught during illegal infiltration. The people caught are of Pakistani origin, Chinese and Tibetan. On 1 May 2019, the SSB caught an Israeli citizen without a visa on the Banbasa border. On 27 July 2019, a Tibetan citizen was caught with 4 Chinese nationals without a visa.
