Chennai: Man held with fake passport

Chennai: Police on Friday arrested a man with a fake Indian passport, who was detained by the immigration officials at the city airport. The arrested man has been remanded in judicial custody.
The man, identified as Sebastian, 40, a native of Dindigul, arrived from Malaysia. During the immigration formalities, officials found that he was carrying a fake passport.
The immigration officials informed the anti-passport wing of central crime branch.
Police questioned him if he had any contact with the fake passport rackets in Chennai or Malaysia. During questioning, Sebastian told police that he got the passport with the help of some agents operating in Malaysia after paying them about Rs3 lakh. Police suspected that the agents might have colluded with someone in Chennai to prepare the fake passports.
A few weeks ago, two Bulgarian nationals, Peter Velikov, 47, and Ilianzdravkov Markov, 36, were arrested for cloning credit and debit cards at a hotel in Semmancherry. In November last year, two Romanians, George Sorici, 37, and Nicolai Ciumpileac, 35, were arrested in Madipakkam.
