New Delhi: Even after having an original visa, Raju Kamat was not able to visit Iraq in search of a job as he was arrested for having another fake visa in IGI airport on March 21. Police said that the accused told them that he never travelled with the fake documents to another country.
According to police, Raju was intending to depart to Iraq from IGI airport. He had an original visa with him but when he went for checking, an official found that a fake visa was affixed on his passport page which was valid till 27 June 2018.
"The fake visa did not have any security features," the complainant told the police.
He was handed over to the police and during interrogation, it was revealed that one of his friends had provided him with the visa but also told Kamat that it was fake.
"The accused told us that he had never travelled with the fake visa as it was a risk but after that, he prepared original visa with proper documents but the fake visa remained in his passport," said an official.
When asked about his friend who prepared a fake visa, Kamat further said that he did not know about his whereabouts but he is an Indian.
