The demolish of the gang came as CISF, which guards the airport, intercepted a passenger carrying forged security stamps of the Bureau of Immigration and Air India on Saturday night, just before he was to board an Air India (AI 014) flight to Canada via Amritsar.
The incident occurred at about11:15 p.m.on Saturday and the flight was programmed for1:00 a.m.on Sunday, a senior security official said. While, two other associates of this passenger, documented as Kulwant Singh, had already got the security check done and were waiting for him in the departure lounge before CISF cops nabbed them. All three had valid boarding passes.
The CISF handed over the trio to Delhi police which has charged them under sections 420 (cheating), 468 (forgery), 471 (use of forged document as genuine) and 120B (criminal conspiracy) of the IPC. According to CISF officials, Kulwant was interrupted with five rubber stamps of these agencies and upon interrogation he divulged the name of two other passengers Raj Kumar (36) and Dalvinder Singh Lidhar (46) who were travelling with him.
Whereas both Kulwant and Dalvinder are fromPunjab’s Jalandhar, Kumar is fromDelhi’s Paschim Vihar area. Kulwant said during the interrogation that Dalvinder assured him a job and settlement inCanadaas he has paid Rs. 20 lac to him for the purpose.
“Dalvinder also handed over five forged stamps to Kulwant just before security check in a toilet. They were able to get a smooth access during passport and visa check by misusing the stamps,” a senior CISF officer said. “Police are investigating the matter further,” a senior police official said. The CISF, meanwhile, also called the Bureau of Immigration and Air India security who confirmed that these stamps were “fake and forged” and were no longer used by them.
