Painter travels between Hyderabad & Bahrain 6 times on fake passport

Hyderabad: A 38-year-old painter from Kamareddy, who travelled to Bahrain six times since 2010 using a passport obtained on a different name, has been arrested by RGI Airport police after he was sent here on Emergency Certificate by Indian Embassy.

The accused, G Balu, 38, is a car painter from Ramreddy mandal in Kamareddy district. In 2010, Balu obtained a passport in the name of Ravinder Ratula through an agent and went to Bahrain for work.

Subsequently he travelled between Hyderabad and Bahrain five more times using the same passport. However, his luck ran out in April 2019, when he went to Indian embassy in Bahrain seeking renewal of passport. “To renew his passport, Balu furnished his Aadhaar and PAN card with original name. The embassy officials realised about the fraud and instead of renewing the passport, issued an Emergency Certificate to let him exit Bahrain,” RGI Airport inspector Vijay Kumar said.

When Balu arrived at RGI Airport on September 26, immigration officials detained him, and after the interrogation, handed him over to RGI Airport police.
