Indian Immigrant Charged with Murdering Father
An immigrant from India, 31-year-old Sohan Panjrolia, is accused of killing his father, 60-year-old Mahendra Panjrolia. Police found the elder in his home, where he had been shot. Authorities followed leads that sent them looking for the missing son.
Three days later, investigators learned Sohan may have fled to Cambridge, and a search of the area revealed his 2019 Toyota Camry in the Harvard Square area. The son, who attended Harvard University and suffered from schizophrenia, was apprehended and taken into custody around 12:30 p.m. near a Ben & Jerry’s ice cream shop. He was charged as a fugitive of justice and the investigation is ongoing. A motive in the shooting was not released.
Spy Smuggles Defense Technology to Home Country
Negar Ghodskani, 40, pleaded guilty on August 9 to stealing technology from US companies and exporting them to her home country of Iran. According to reports, the Iranian national, along with others, opened a front company in Malaysia to get the restricted technology from companies in Massachusetts and Minnesota.
Ghodskani worked for Fana Moj, according to the plea agreement and indictment, a Tehran-based company that specializes in communications equipment and supplies wireless broadband service and microwave radio systems in Iran.
Green Wave Telecommunication, the front company, was established in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and was used to buy the restricted equipment and reship it to Tehran. In 2017, the Treasury Department accused Fana Moj of providing support to the Iranian Revolutionary Guard and put a ban on the company.
Ghodskani was indicted in 2015 in Minnesota but it took two more years to later arrest her in Australia. She decided to stop fighting the extradition and returned to the US. The native Iranian pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to defraud the US and the prosecutors agreed to dismiss the other charges under an agreement filed Aug. 9. The charge carries a maximum sentence of $250,000 fine and five years in prison, although sentencing has not yet been determined.
North Carolinians for Immigration Reform and Enforcement (NCFIRE)
Each month, NCFIRE posts a list of sexual crimes committed against children by illegal immigrants. The numbers are staggering – especially considering that they’re just for one state. Just take a look at the previous three months’ worth of statistics.
- 26 illegal immigrants were arrested.
- 95 charges of child rape and sexual abuse.
- 25 illegal immigrants were arrested.
- 43 charges of child rape and sexual abuse.
- 20 illegal immigrants were arrested.
- 56 charges of child rape and sexual abuse.
- 29 illegal immigrants were arrested.
- 174 charges of child rape and sexual abuse.
This barely represents a drop in the bucket of just how many children are being sexually abused by people who shouldn’t have been here to begin with.
Sanctuary cities and states are only making it easier for predators to remain in our country while preying on our children.
