According to the Sahar police the three had taken a flight from CST International Airport in Mumbai to go to Jordan on September 21. Their tourist visas for Jordan were genuine.

Immigration officials received them and took them to Sahar police station where a FIR was registered under Sections 420 and 34 of the Indian Penal Code, amounting to cheating and crime committed with common intention. They were produced before a magistrate’s court and remanded to police custody till Monday.
