After an interview, the company recruited him for as an engineer in its Dehradun-unit based in Selaqui industrial area on the outskirts of the city.

On Thursday, his second day in his job at the factory, the local intelligence unit (LIU) of the district police came to know about him and approached him to verify his documents.

When asked for a work visa, Yuan produced a tourist visa, said a police officer, who was privy to the probe, on condition of anonymity.

He was then detained and booked under relevant sections of Foreigners Act and his passport seized.

The ministry of external affairs was informed and Yuan was issued a Leave India notice, asking him to leave the country within two days.

Additional director general of police, law & order, Ashok Kumar said action would be taken against the company which recruited him as it should have verified Yuan’s documents before taking him on board.

Police will also check if other companies in the industrial area have hired foreigners similarly, he said.

At least six foreigners have been nabbed from Selaqui industrial area in the past few months for not having a valid work visa.
