Police checking foreigners (Bangalore)

Please be aware that police is having a drive towards checking foreigners in the city. Not sure who they check, but they have a list (including information on registration, visa, immigration etc) and they show up at your registered address.

It has now become the responsibility of your landlord (including hotels etc) to make sure any foreigners staying with them is here legal, so don't get surprised if they will start asking you for documents.

I was not on the list (I have PIO status and is immigrated to India), however my brother in law was - he had his last known address with us, but was registered moving to Vietnam (which is the case) - so guessing they basically are checking if people stay here illigal, including whatever they are registered correct.

If anyone know more, please reply to this post!
