A US citizen of South Korean-origin was apprehended from the India-Nepal border, the Sashastra Seema Bal (SSB) said on Thursday. The jawans of 48 Battalion of SSB at Jaynagar in Bihar spotted suspicious movement of a foreigner — identified as David Doohyun Kyung — on Monday at the Khouna Border Outpost as he was trying to sneak into India from Nepal, and was nabbed. The documents recovered from his possession identify him as a US Marine Corp; he was also in possession of a compass, a map of Nepal and around $1,919.

Following his apprehension, he was initially questioned by the SSB jawans wherein he revealed that he had a tourist visa to Nepal that was to expire on April 12, 2018. He was evasive and was not giving any information so the senior officers of SSB informed Intelligence Bureau, Research and Analysis Wing and senior local police officers. The police and intelligence agencies are now further questioning him to determine if he is a CIA operative or working for some other country as a spy.

On detailed questioning it was also established that he had earlier visited India on October 26, 2017 and was asked to leave India on January 17, with his visa being cancelled and him being deported on Republic Day.
