Indian man overstayed visa by two years: police

An Indian national was arrested by immigration police in Kandal province on Tuesday after allegedly overstaying his visa by around two years, officials said yesterday.

Major Mean Samnang, chief of Ang Snuol district police, told the Post that 26-year-old Pen Dedeb Narayan "was arrested because he has been living in Cambodia without proper documents".

Captain Moeng Seiha, a provincial immigration police officer, said that Narayan is currently being detained at Kandal's Immigration Police Bureau, and will be sent to court this morning.

Seiha added that, according to Cambodia's Immigration Law, if Narayan is found guilty, he can be imprisoned for between one and three months before being deported.

According to figures from the Ministry of Interior's General Immigration Police Department, 17 Bangladeshis, six Koreans and 250 Vietnamese nationals have been arrested just this month on suspicion of living in the
Kingdom illegally. The government has been conducting an ongoing census of foreigners in Cambodia.
