Six Tibetans held for trying to travel on forged visas



New Delhi: Six Tibetans were arrested here for allegedly trying to travel to Rome on forged visas, police said on Sunday.

The six youth were apprehended at the Immigration Counter of IGI airport on September 28.

The youth have been identified as Tsering Dhondup, Nyidon Lhamo, Tenpa, Jangchup Dolma, Ugyen Dolma and Lobsang Choezom.

During scrutiny of travel documents, police claimed, it came to light that the Schengen visas affixed on their passports were fake.

This was also confirmed by Eduard Hook, Document and VISA Adviser and Airline Liaison officer in Mumbai-based German Consulate General.

The youths told police that these visas were arranged by them through one travel agent at Mumbai whose identity is not known to them, police said.

They were to fly to Rome on a Royal Jordanian flight on Friday.

A case of cheating and relevant sections under Passports Act has been registered.
