No official word on fake passports yet

Air India Executive Director (Southern Region) Sunil Kishan said that he was not aware of any such instances. “I have no information about any such instances,” he clarified.

Mangalore City Police Commissioner Seemanth Kumar Singh too clarified that he was not aware of any such complaints. It was said that at least 10 persons from Kasargod and other parts of Kerala were travelling with fake passports. Some passports of passengers from Kerala were said to bear Tamil Nadu address. Similarly, details in some of victims’ passports were also said to be contradictory.

Sources in the Air India said that there were many instances, where passengers, who do not have proper passports and records, board the flight using fake passports when they lose job in Dubai. Such passengers are detained as soon as they land in India.
A highly placed police official from Kerala said that no complaints of passengers in Air India Express holding fake passport has been reported so far. The Kerala police will join the Karnataka police to conduct inquiry into the allegations, he added.
