The Nigerian national, Joel Obi, was arrested from Delhi in connection with a case of "heroin supply" on February 16 and was sent to a Hisar jail in judicial custody on February 22.
"He doesn't have any visa to visit India. He has an expired Bangladeshi visa. It is a suspected case of illegal migration of Nigerian into India from Bangladesh," Fatehabad SP Rajesh Kumar told The Indian Express Tuesday.
