Just to give you an example, if govt starts to withdraw paper currency from circulation and decides that over the next 4 years, transactions must take place using cell phones as in China, how does an illegal pay or receive payment.

If they cannot make a living or get a phone linked to a bank account activated, they will leave for the same reason they came.

The net is closing on all of us, just that most don't know it yet.

Hopeful of using its Commonwealth membership to pursue the extradition of Mehul Choksi from Antigua, the government has issued a Gazette notification extending extradition rights to the Caribbean country as part of the Commonwealth procedure. Mr. Choksi, a jeweller and uncle of fugitive Nirav Modi, both of whom are wanted for loan defaults in India, has reportedly been residing in the islands of Antigua and Barbuda. He was granted a “Citizenship by Investment” there in November 2017.

According to the Gazette notification (F.No. T-413/35/2018 dated August 3,2018), made public on Monday, the government directed “that the provisions of the Extradition Act, 1962, shall apply with respect to Antigua and Barbuda.” India has no extradition treaty with Antigua, but has discussed with officials in Antigua the possibility of using a clause in the Extradition Act (1993) of Antigua and Barbuda that extends similar procedures to all 53 countries of the Commonwealth that former colonies of the United Kingdom are part of.

“These notifications constitute an extradition arrangement between India and Antigua and Barbuda under their Extradition Act of 1993 and provide the legal basis for extraditing offenders from each other’s jurisdiction,” government sources said on Monday, stressing that the countries only have an “arrangement” but not an “extradition treaty.”
In the past week, a series of Indian officials have made a beeline for the small island of Antigua, as the controversy over how Mr. Choksi was allowed to escape charges of banking fraud and violation of capital market regulations in the Punjab National Bank case worth more than ₹ 13,500 crores, grew. On July 31, India’s Ambassador to Guyana, V. Mahalingham, who is also accredited to Antigua and Barbuda, flew there to meet Antiguan Prime Minister Gaston Browne and personally make the case for Mr. Choksi’s extradition to India.

According to a press release from PM Browne’s office, published in the Antigua Chronicle, Mr. Browne “explained that the citizenship of Mr. Choksi could only be revoked with cause, based on whether or not Mr. Choksi had made false assertions or made omissions of facts during the citizenship application process.”

Mr. Browne had also pointed to difficulties with the lack of an extradition treaty with India and the fact that India had not invoked the Commonwealth Extradition Act yet, which has now been fixed by the August 3 gazette notification. A team of External Affairs Ministry officials, led by the Additional Secretary for Consular, Passport and Visa issues Manpreet Vohra met with their Antiguan counterparts soon after Mr. Mahalingam’s visit and handed over a formal request for extradition. “[Antiguan officials] assured [India of] cooperation and due process,” an official told The Hindu.

All in a day at South India.
1.College girl murdered at Perumbavoor, Ernakulam Rural Dt., Kerala. Accused his Bija (his original name hidden so that religion cannot be ascertained), a labourer said to be from West Bengal.
2.Kerala Becoming A Terror Haven? NIA’s Latest Arrests In Bodh Gaya Blast Case Confirms Agency’s Worry. The Kerala based MSM has downplayed the arrest, which is quite natural considering "secular" ethos.
3. Man picked up in Ramanagaram over Maoist, terror links. The man picked up is one Muneer native of Jharkhand. The arrest again is done by NIA, so don't know if they have found a Maoist-Jehadi link as well.

To add to the above arrests,

Top JMB militant held in Bengaluru - PTI
A top India operative of Jamaat-ul-Mujhahiddin Bangladesh (JMB), Bangladesh-based militant outfit, has been arrested near here [Bengaluru] by the National Investigation Agency in connection with recovery of two bombs in Bodh Gaya in Bihar in January this year, the agency said on Tuesday.

Mohammed Jahidul Islam alias Kausar of was picked up from his rented house near Ramanagara area on Monday, by an NIA team, the agency said.

Some electronic devices, besides “traces” of explosives, were recovered during a search of the house.

According to a release by the NIA, 38-year old Islam was the mastermind in the Bodh Gaya explosives case and on his directions, his close associate Mustafizur Rehman alias Shahin had arranged and assembled the bombs, which were found on January 20 when the Dalai Lama was on a visit to the pilgrimage town. The bombs were later deactivated.

“He is the top leader of JMB (Jamaat-ul-Mujhahiddin Bangladesh) in India and is wanted in Burdwan blast case and in many other cases in Bangladesh also,” the release said.

Islam was produced before the Special Court for NIA cases here, which granted five days of transit remand. He would now be produced before the Special NIA Court in Patna, the release said.

Local police said Islam was living with his two wives at Ramanagara.

After the Bodh Gaya incident, he was in hiding somewhere in Jharkhand and later moved to Ramanagara.

“He was staying here as a tenant for the past two months,” the police said.

The NIA had registered an FIR in February last under IPC sections, the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act and the Explosives Act.

The world-renowned Buddhist pilgrimage town of Bodh Gaya was earlier rocked by a series of blasts on July 7, 2013. Though there were no casualties, several people, including some monks, were injured.

SS, Aren't the landlords supposed to turn over tenant information to the local police stations just like hotel registers keep track of guests?

No, this is not mandatory. The police can ask the land lord for information if they find a need for it. The landlord is not legally required to share any information with the local PS on a regular basis.

Too bad. There should be a rule that landlords need to report suspicious tenants.

In Delhi, it is mandatory to get tenant/domestic servant verified by Police. Cops file FIRs against landlords who don't do so.

May be Delhi's local acts/laws does have such provisions. BTW, looks like Karnataka Police also listened to Ramana's request :). Report foreign tenants within 3 days, owners told by the Bengaluru Polizei. And after complaints from the local MLA - Arvind Limbavali - the city police also seems to be conducting a mass checking on illegal Bangladeshi colonies.

WTF is wrong with these people?

Meanwhile, can assume which religion these "villagers" were from:
Mob assaults activists, TV crew during cattle rescue op

Animal activists Joshine Antony and India Today television news crew were at the spot along with two policemen when the incident happened.

I dont understand the emphasis on North East in that news report. What is the relevance? Another #BIF motif.
