Indian man arrested for visa overstay, oh, and being a loan shark too


An Indian national has been arrested in the central province of Nonthaburi, northwest of Bangkok, for alleged loan shark activities. Following his arrest, immigration officers discovered he had also overstayed his visa – by more than 6 years!

The man, named only as 39-year-old Mr Kay, was arrested in the Mueang district on Wednesday, December 20, according to a Phuket Express report.

Arresting officers were acting on a directive issued by the government to combat illegal loan shark activities. Their investigation led them to the Indian man, allegedly operating as a loan shark in the Mueang Nonthaburi market. A further check showed he had overstayed his visa by a whopping 2,366 days.


Police searching Mr Kay’s home also uncovered a notebook listing various debt collections. According to the report, Mr Kay initially denied the notebook was his or that he was a loan shark, saying the notebook belonged to an Indian friend of his.

Nonthaburi immigration officers have launched an investigation to determine if there are any others involved.
