In a case of what appears to be meticulously planned illegal immigration and negligence on the part of Indian agencies, Seema Haider, a Pakistani woman, successfully entered India through with her four children in order to be with her 22-year-old lover Sachin Meena.

According to intelligence sources, she disguised herself as a rural Indian woman and sought the assistance of professionals in the field of make-up.

In her attempt to avoid detection by security agencies, Seema Haider carefully planned her Indian appearance and also dressed her children in a similar fashion.

This was a deliberate strategy to ensure that they would blend in and not raise any suspicions.

It is also worth noting that this method of dressing in a specific way is often utilized by women involved in human trafficking.

Intelligence sources have observed that such tactics are commonly employed by individuals associated with domestic help or prostitution rings, particularly when crossing the Indo-Nepal border.

Seema Haider and her lover were also questioned regarding their alleged links to the ISI.

Investigation agencies have observed that Seema Haider, apart from her appearance, exhibits fluent language skills.

It is suspected that she received language training from Pakistani handlers operating in Nepal. These handlers allegedly train women to carry out illegal activities in India.

Such information highlights the potential involvement of cross-border networks in criminal activities.

Seema Haider is currently under investigation by the ATS and Intelligence Bureau (IB) due to suspicions of her potential ties to the Pakistan Army and the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) agency.

However, the claims made by the central agencies regarding Seema Haider's entry into India on 13 May through the Indo-Nepal border have yet to be verified.

The records and CCTV footage have been examined by the agencies, specifically focusing on the bus routes along the border on 13 May. This investigation was conducted based on the information provided by Seema and Sachin.

Seema Haider was arrested by local police on 4 July for illegally entering India, while Sachin Meena was apprehended for sheltering illegal immigrants.

However, both Seema and Sachin were granted bail by a local court on 7 July. They are currently residing together with Seema's four children in a house in Greater Noida.
