South Korean living illegally in UP asked to leave
In a revelation that has left the police and the administration with not many replies, a South Korean national has been found living illegally in India for the past six years after having purchased over three acres of land in his name.
The matter has been reported from the Barabanki district neighbouring the state capital about the person in question An Beuyng Kil who bought the land in 2012 in Salemabad village and is successfully running a Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana Centre.
Kil came to Lucknow on a business visa early in 2012 and opened an office in the name of Juan Business Private Limited (JBPL) in the Indiranagar locality. He then went to Barabanki and bought the land.
According to the registration papers of the land, he bought the land from one Ram Adhar.
The documents mention JBPL as the buyer and Kil as the director. The matter came to light only after an unknown person sent a complaint to the South Korean Embassy about Kil's activities.
According to sources, the district police received instructions after the complaint about three months ago following which the Local Intelligence Unit (LIU) was alerted. A detailed report of the LIU and the Intelligence Bureau (IB) was sent to the embassy.
We have received directions from the embassy to direct him to leave for his country. We have also issued him a letter, Barabanki SP Anil Singh said.
We received the embassy's letter on February 15. Kil will leave the country within the stipulated period of time, Manoj Kumar, Kil's assistant said.
