Man Uses Fake Ticket To Enter Mumbai Airport To Look For Lost Phone; Arrested

You must have heard about many criminals using fake travel tickets or fake visas to travel to a particular place and then commit crime. But a recent incident that took place at the Mumbai airport is somewhat similar but a lot different. A man at the Mumbai Airport used a fake ticket to just enter the airport and was arrested. Well, he was not there to commit a crime but to look for a lost phone. 

Man Uses Fake Ticket At Mumbai Airport

A man was recently arrested for entering the Mumbai airport with a fake ticket. The accused, 37-year-old, Noor Shaikh, was last week travelling from Delhi to Mumbai. He lost his mobile phone inside the airport itself. He then walked in with a plan of action in search of his device. 

With the help of his laptop, Noor actually edited an old ticket using editing software. He had used the pre-edited ticket to enter the airport previously. He showed the forged ticket for a Mumbai-Delhi flight on his mobile. He managed to easily pass the Central Industrial Security Force (CSIF) security checkpoint. 

The ticket was fake, and he was caught using it to check in. The officials at the check-in point then immediately informed the CISF officials about the forgery.

Family Says He Is Depressed

Noor Shaikh was immediately arrested for forgery at the Mumbai airport. A case was registered against Noor at Sahar police station. A police officer from Sahar police station informed that Shaikh’s family said that he has been depressed ever since he lost his job. They said that he has been doing such acts ever since without understanding the consequences. 

He was caught forging a Mumbai-Delhi ticket for Vistara Airlines and entering the airport. 

An officer informed that Shaikh recently lost his mobile at the airport. He wanted to check the  closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras in the arrival area. Hence, he used a fake ticket and entered. (As per Money Control)
