A police team intercepted a tourist vehicle bearing registration number ML 05 T 3049 in NH 6 along Ummulong and detected six African nationals.
The six footballers were proceeding toward East Jaintia Hills district for participating in a football tournament in Mosiang Lamare village, the Superintendent of Police of West Jaintia Hills district, Bikram D Marak, said.
According to sources, the group planned to play a semi-final football match as they were hired by some football clubs.

Marak said a case has been registered against them under the Foreigners Act and an investigation is on. (With inputs from UNI)
