A Delhi court has chargesheeted a Jet Airways employee, a Delhi Police officer and an immigration officer for allegedly running a ‘human trafficking’ racket. The special cell of Delhi Police filed the chargesheet before the court of the Chief Metropolitan Magistrate (CMM) Vidya Prakash against immigration officer Chaman Azhar, Jet Airways staff Manoj Sarpal and sub-inspector Naveen Chandra alias Rajiv, indicting them for allegedly facilitating travel of passengers on forged passports and immigration stamps.

The Special Cell said that the fraud was detected after a woman Navdeep Kaur, also an accused in the case, travelling on Jet Airways flight to Toronto was deported from Brussels as she had a fake passport.

Kaur was travelling on a passport issued in the name of one Asha Panigrahi. During questioning, she told police that the fake passport was arranged for her by one Manveer, who had met her at Gurdwara Bangla Sahib and proposed that he can arrange the passport for her for Rs. 6 lakh.

The chargesheet said that on March 28 last year, Manveer dropped her at IGI Airport where Manoj contacted her, gave her a passport in the name of Asha Panigrahi, carrying a Jet Airways security sticker and also a boarding pass.
