As per reports, Hapi used to lure low and middle class women from Bangladesh with jobs and send them into India illegally. With the help of some border security personnel, Hapi was able to send Bangladeshi women into the India without visa and passport.

After reaching Kolkata, the Bangladeshi women used to be sent to different parts of India with the help of agents.
