Using a fake ticket to enter Delhi International airport's terminal-3 in order to see off his girlfriend has landed a Chinese youth in police custody.
The incident occurred late Friday night when CISF security personnel at the Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGIA) detected a youth roaming around suspiciously inside the terminal area.
According to police, upon questioning, the 28-year-old youth, identified as one Qiao Anquan from China, disclosed that he had prepared a fake e-ticket to enter the airport as he wanted to see off his girlfriend, who was flying to Shanghai.
The security personnel then called up the airline concerned to check the passenger list for the flight and found that Anquan was not booked for travel on the same.
"The youth was later handed over to Delhi police and taken to the airport police station," a senior CISF official said.
Only those with valid travel tickets are allowed to enter the terminal area of the airport.
A case of criminal trespass (Section 447 of IPC) and using as genuine a forged document (Section 471) has been registered against the youth who was later placed under arrest, the official added.
