The Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) by the surveillance and intelligence staff of IGI Airport observed a passenger roaming suspiciously in check-in area of terminal-3 yesterday, said a senior officer of the CISF.

He was intercepted and enquired. On questioning, he produced a passport in the name of Kouadio Bertin, PP No (Cote D Ivories) and a ticket of flight bound for Addis Ababa (Ethiopia).

On examination of the passport, it came to notice that the photo affixed on the passport did not match with the face of the said passenger, the officer said.

It appeared to be a case of impersonation. Thereafter, he was taken to random baggage checking point for thorough checking of his baggage, the official said.

During checking, another passport No.A07200890 (Nigeria) in the name of Charles Johnson Oka was recovered from the pocket of his one of the trousers kept in his registered baggage, the officer said.

He was handed over to immigration officials along with all recovered documents. After examination by immigration, it came to light that both the passports recovered from him were fake, the officer added.

Later, the passenger along with recovered fake passports and documents was handed over to the Delhi Police for further legal action, he said.
