Ukrainian man held at IGI with fake ticket

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

A Ukrainian man was apprehended at the airport for allegedly using a fake ticket to enter the terminal area, officials said today.

The man has been identified by his first name -- Melnychenko -- who was intercepted by the (CISF) personnel yesterday as he was about to leave the Terminal-3 building of the (IGI) Airport, they said.

He was stopped and questioned as exiting the terminal area is not usually permitted for passengers, the officials said.

The Ukrainian national told the security personnel that he used a "cancelled" ticket to enter the terminal area to see off his friend, who was travelling to Bishkek, they added.

The man was subsequently handed over to the police as his ticket was a fake travel document, the officials said.
