Three airline passengers, including two Iranians, were arrested by emigration authorities in Kochi on Friday for possessing fake passports.

Mohammed Keid (24) and Majam (28) -- both Iranian nationals -- were arrested as they tried to leave by a SilkAir flight to Singapore en route to HongKong and Paris, airport sources said.

They had Lithuanian passports of Raimond Lucas and Veronica and had replaced the original photographs with theirs, the sources said.

The two Iranians on being questioned said they had come to Mumbai two months ago as tourists and had lost their passports in Goa. They got the fake passport from an agent after paying $3,000.
