Indians among foreigners arrested in UK
Indian students were among 20 foreigners arrested for working more hours than their visas allowed them to at a warehouse operated by Britain's biggest supermarket chain Tesco, while four of their compatriots were deported to India for illegally staying in the UK.
UK Border Agency officials discovered that the foreign students, mostly of Bangladeshi and Indian origin, have exceeded their 20-hour-a-week working limit by up to 50 hours in some cases.
Tesco faces a major fine for employing foreign students illegally at its warehouse. Tesco now faces a bill of up to 10,000 pounds per illegal worker unless the company can prove it carries out the legally required checks. At least seven Tesco employees have since been deported, officials said.
In another incident, four Indians were among 11 foreign nationals arrested when UK immigration officers visited a company in Chelmsford, east England. Seven arrested were working in breach of their student visa conditions and four had overstayed their visas, official sources said. Those found overstaying their visa would be barred from re-entering the UK.
