    Mumbai: The Mumbai Police have registered a case against three people on charges of illegal entry after they arrived on a boat from Kuwait, an official said on Wednesday.

    Prima facie, nothing suspicious was found on the boat which was anchored at the Gateway of India on Tuesday, he said.

    The trio hail from Tamil Nadu. They went to Kuwait two years back for work.

    They were allegedly ill-treated by their agent who took them to Kuwait following which they escaped from there, the official said.

    The boat was checked after it was anchored at the Gateway of India, he said.

    A case was registered against the three people by the Colaba police under provisions of the Passports Act for illegal entry, the official said.

    Notably, 10 Pakistani terrorists who launched a terror strike in Mumbai in November 2008 had arrived by the sea route.
