Ukrainian man held at airport with fake ticket
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.
