The Bangladeshi national will be deported after serving his jail term.

W.S, 26, who was employed at the department, was given six months’ imprisonment for forging official documents.

She filled in wrong personal information on the entry visa applications and fed it into the department’s computer system and stamped the visas with the e-signature of the responsible immigration officer. Though she is a public servant, she accepted money to issue the visit visas.

S.J., 35, also employed at the department, was handed three months’ imprisonment for assisting the prime accused and abetting the crime by providing the wrong data.

J.G., 52, from Bangladesh will stay six months behind the bars for conspiring with W.S. to do the crime.

He offered her money to get the visas.
