Indian Couple in UK pleads Guilty for 134,438 Pound ID Fraud

London, Nov 06: Indian couple Mohammed Wadiwala and his wife, Zenabbibi, who sought asylum in the United Kingdom in 2007 saying that they faced persecution for their Muslim/Hindu mixed marriage, have pleaded guilty to the charge of using false identities to amass wealth to the tune of 134,438 pound for themselves and their five children, a report said.

The case against them in India dragged on as officials could not track them for years after they left the country. Five and a half years later, they raked in almost 2,000 pounds a month to house and feed themselves through the National Asylum Seeker's Support Service, reported The Daily Express.

They used the name Sheikh to receive hand-outs from the support service.
