New Delhi: Two Rohingya men, who were allegedly trying to fly to the Middle East on “fake” passports, have been arrested by Special Cell of Delhi police, an officer said today.
The accused Mohammad Illiyas and Mohammad Idris, both in their 30s, were caught separately from Delhi and Kolkata by Special Cell teams in last week, said a Delhi Police source.
Illiyas told interrogators that he had obtained the fake passport from Hyderabad with the help of Idris. They both were travelling to the Middle East, the source said.
“Two Myanmar nationals(Rohingyas) have been arrested in a fake passport case and investigation is underway,” a special Cell officer said without divulging any further details.
