DNA (Delhi) - - COMMUNITY -

A Ukrainian man was ap­pre­hended at the Delhi air­port for al­legedly us­ing a fake ticket to enter the ter­mi­nal area, of­fi­cials said on Mon­day.

The man has been iden­ti­fied by his first name – Mel­ny­chenko – who was in­ter­cepted by the Cen­tral In­dus­trial Se­cu­rity Force (CISF) per­son­nel on Sun­day as he was about to leave the Ter­mi­nal-3 build­ing of the Indira Gandhi In­ter­na­tional (IGI) Air­port, they said.

He was stopped and ques­tioned as ex­it­ing the ter­mi­nal area is not usu­ally per­mit­ted for pas­sen­gers, the of­fi­cials said. The Ukrainian na­tional told the se­cu­rity per­son­nel that he used a “can­celled” ticket to enter the ter­mi­nal area to see off his friend, who was trav­el­ling to Bishkek, they added. The man was sub­se­quently handed over to the po­lice as his ticket was a fake travel doc­u­ment, the of­fi­cials said.

In a sim­i­lar in­ci­dent, a woman from Uzbek­istan was ap­pre­hended at the Delhi air­port for al­legedly us­ing a fake ticket to enter the ter­mi­nal area on Satur­day. K Shakhzoda was in­ter­cepted by the CISF as she was about to leave the Ter­mi­nal-3 build­ing of the Indira Gandhi In­ter­na­tional Air­port.
