New Delhi: A bag containing over 100
passports, including those of Indians, was seized by Custom
officials at the Indira Gandhi International Airport here,
police sources said on Monday.
However, no case has been registered yet as police is yet
to get hold of the passports.
Police sources said the bag came in a Turkish Airline
flight and was seized by Custom officials during checking in
the third week of December.
"They seized it when they found that there were a large
number of passports in it. They wrote a letter to us ten days
ago informing us about the seizure. They are yet to hand over
the passports," they said.
A concerned official is on leave and we are yet to get
the documents, they added.
Asked whether the seized passports could be that of an
organised gang, he said they could not say anything.
"We have to find out whether the passports are original
or fake and whether they are tampered with. Only after this we
can say that," a senior police official said.
The official said they will register a case as soon as
they were handed over the passports.
