Indian holding ‘dubious’ visa, deported from Moscow to IGI
An Indian passenger was deported from Moscow to IGI airport on May 17, after he was allegedly carrying a suspected visa. The accused was identified as Nickson Raju, a resident of Trivandrum.
According to the FIR, the accused was deported to Netherland via Russia on May 16 by flight number SU-233 and was refused entry by Russian Immigration officials after they found that visa to be suspected and they deported him back to India by flight number SU-232.
“During examination of his travel documents, it was found that the passenger was holding a suspected visa, on which a Fraud Prevention Service stamp was put. His passport was seized and sent for verification to the Embassy of Netherlands through FRRO, Delhi. The Embassy had verified the visa to be fake,” said a police official.
“We are investigating the matter and a case has been registered under Sections 420, 467, 468, 471 of IPC and 12 PP Act,” said a senior police official.
Earlier in September 2014, two Afghan nationals were deported from Moscow to IGI airport. The accused were carrying fake Cyprian passports along with the fake Indian visas. They were detained by the Russian authorities while going to Cyprus.

The accused were also carrying Nepali Visas and the arrival stamps of Integrated Check-posts (ICP) Sonauli and departure stamp of Nepal. The accused are residents of Helmand province in Afghanistan.
