Delhi: A foreigner has been apprehended by security agencies at the Delhi airport with two fake passports and allegedly using one of them to travel out of the country, an official said.

The incident took place around 9:30 am Wednesday when the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) officials at the Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGIA) detected a man moving suspiciously in the terminal area.
