An Afghan national has been apprehended by CISF personnel at the Delhi airport for allegedly using a “cancelled” ticket to enter the terminal, official sources said on Thursday.
They said passenger MA Nazimi was intercepted on Wednesday noon when security personnel saw him at the Terminal-III area of the Indira Gandhi International Airport, arousing suspicion.
The passenger informed the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) personnel that he used a cancelled ticket of Kam Airlines bound for Kabul to gain entry into the terminal, officials said.
“The passenger from Afghanistan said he used a cancelled ticket in his name to enter the airport and see off his relatives who were travelling to Kabul,” a senior officer said.
He was handed over to Delhi Police personnel, who later charged him under various sections of the IPC meant for cheating and forgery, another officer said.
