4 women from Nepal held with fake visas at IGI Airport

New Delhi: Four Nepalese women who were trying to travel to Sri Lanka on fake visas were arrested at IGI Airport recently. Police said the women were to fly to Colombo posing as tourists and then travel to Dubai and other West Asian nations.
The cops have also traced an agent involved in the alleged trafficking of these women. They also suspect the role of airport or airline staff in the racket. At least 30 Nepalese women have been caught while trying to use this route to reach West Asia in the past six months.
In 2013, Nepal had put a ban on its women citizens flying directly to nine West Asian countries for employment after a number of bonded labour and flesh trade cases were reported from there. Since then, traffickers have taken the India route to send women to such nations.
