In the first case, the Central reserve Police Force (CISF) personnel caught three people with fake tickets at Terminal-3 of the IGI Airport.

They were caught while trying to exit from the international offloading gate without any luggage. Their movement aroused the suspicion of the CISF personnel and they intercepted them, according to the police.

They three identified themselves as Akhil Arora, Vipul Arora and Karan Arora.

When questioned, they revealed that they had managed to gain access into the terminal building by showing edited tickets of flight No. 15-796/STD, which was bound for Goa.

They said they had done so to see off their friend namely Arun Fnu, who was bound for Abu Dhabi by flight No. 9W-212/STD at 1740 hrs.

After verifying the facts with the concerned airlines the three were handed over to the Delhi Police for further inquiries and legal action.

The police have registered a case against the three at the police station.
