A Bangladeshi infiltrator, absconding after declared an illegal foreigner, was arrested at Silbhanga in Morigaon district on Tuesday.

Acting on a tip-off, Farid Ali was arrested when he was taking shelter with a family in the village, border inspector of Assam police for Morigaon district D Bora said.

The 32-year old Bangladeshi was declared as an illegal foreigner by the Foreigners Tribunal and the verdict was upheld by the Gauhati High Court last year.

Police sent the Bangladeshi to the detention camp in Tezpur, Bora said.
