The Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) personnel apprehended four Nepalese women on Tuesday morning. Three others were held on Monday night at the airport for possessing forged immigration documents.

Puja Tamang, 20, Malati Rai, 26, and Laxmi Rai, 41, were held on Monday around 8 p.m. at the international retail area of Terminal-3 when they were slated to travel to Dubai.

"They arrived from Ahmedabad and were issued boarding passes for the Dubai flight of Air India at the international transfer counter. They tried to mislead our officials that they arrived here from Kathmandu," CISF spokesperson Hemendra Singh said.

According to the official, four more women passengers were held in the boarding area on Tuesday morning.

Krishna Devi, 29, Uma Bhujel, 31, Sharmila Thapa, 23, and Shova Kumari Pariyar, 28, arrived from Ahmadabad and were also supposed to travel to Dubai.

"As the documents of all the women passengers were found forged, they were handed over to immigration officials who later handed them to police for further legal action," Hemendra Singh said.

Delhi Police arrested Air India staff, identified as duty manager Kapil, 30, and customer service executive Manish, 28, in connection with the case.
