An Afghan national has been apprehended at the Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGIA) here for entering the terminal illegally on an alleged fake e-ticket.
Officials said the incident was reported at about 7:00 PM on September 30 when a person identified as S Mohammad Faiz was intercepted by CISF officials while he was exiting the airport terminal.
Faiz, an Afghanistan citizen, told the sleuths that he entered the IGIA using a cancelled e-ticket to see off his mother who was travelling to Jeddah.
He said he had booked himself and his parents on a flight to Jeddah for September 29 but later changed plans and re-booked tickets for his mother to travel alone on Friday.
He later allegedly used the cancelled ticket to enter the airport.
“As entering the airport terminal on a cancelled e-ticket is illegal, Faiz was handed to Delhi Police who apprehended him and booked him on charges of criminal trespass and cheating,” they said.
