Two were arrested with fake Indian passports while a third was arrested with a fake Spanish passport.

The arrests were made by the Tamil Nadu police in October 2021 but the premier investigating agency took over the probe in January 2022 after registering a case under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA), Passports Act, Foreigners Amendment Act, and relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code.
