Police and immigration enforcement officers arrested 13 Indian nationals during a raid at a factory in England’s Leicester city earlier this month, an official statement said on Thursday.


The statement issued by immigration advice site, workpermit.com, said that 11 of the migrants remain in custody, while the other two have been released on the condition that they report regularly to Home Office officials. The arrests were made on June 4.

Officials also stated that they seized money as well as employment documents. If it is found that the men were working illegally, a fine of 20,000 pounds ($30,929) will be imposed on each migrant. This was a large scale operation targeting suspected immigration abuse in Leicester. Our investigations will continue with the evidence we have seized. Employers who flout the law will not be tolerated,” a senior immigrant official said.

“Illegal working is unfair on honest employers and takes jobs away from those with a legal right to work.” According to official data, in 2014 over 14,000 arrests were made, compared with approximately 7,500 in 2011. Last year, the Home Office doubled the fines they can levy against employers of undocumented migrants, from 10,000 to 20,000 pounds per worker.

The symbol of Swastika is known to signify peace, prosperity, and good fortune in the religious cultures of Eurasia. In fact, this symbol is considered very significant in Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism. But, at the same time, it has become one of the most misunderstood religious symbols and has been globally banned in many countries.

The reason why the symbol of Swastika is banned in many countries is because of its association with Adolf Hitler's extreme political ideology, Nazism, as Swastika as its official symbol.

India celebrated a historic day on August 7, as 23-year-old Neeraj Chopra became the first Indian to win an Olympic gold medal in athletics. In the men's javelin throw event, he achieved his greatest triumph, throwing the javelin 87.58 meters on his second try.

Neeraj Chopra was born on December 24, 1997, in Khandra village in Haryana's Panipat district. He grew up in a Haryanavi family of farmers. He is the brother of two sisters. He graduated from Dayanand Anglo-Vedic College in Chandigarh and is now enrolled in Lovely Professional University in Jalandhar, Punjab, pursuing a Bachelor of Arts degree. Chopra was bullied due to his obesity as a kid, which prompted his father to enroll him in a nearby gym. He then joined a gym in Panipat, where Jaiveer Choudhary, a javelin thrower, noticed his potential and coached him. When the 13-year-old Chopra finished training under Jaiveer for a year, he was enrolled at the Tau Devi Lal Sports Complex in Panchkula, where he began training under coach Naseem Ahmed.
