New Delhi–An Afghan national and his Turkish accomplice have been nabbed at the airport here on charges of human trafficking, a Central Industrial Security Force official said on Sunday.

Afghan Sayed Murtaza Ahmadzoy was held on Friday while the Turk, Ergun Cobandag, was caught on Sunday afternoon. Both were held at Terminal 3 of the Indira Gandhi International Airport.

“A fake Turkish passport in the name of Karadeniz Fatih along with a boarding pass for Toronto with pre-affixed immigration stamp and fake stamp of security were recovered from Ahmadzoy’s possession,” Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) Assistant Inspector General Hemendra Singh told IANS.

Ahmadzoy tipped off about Cobandag, who arrived here from Astana on Thursday and was to return on an early Monday flight.

Cobandag was detained by the CISF at the check-in area as soon as he entered with a fake ticket.

According to the official, both the passengers were handed over to immigration officials.

“As both the foreign nationals were carrying fake travel documents, they were caught on charges of human trafficking. Further investigation about their role in trafficking is being carried out by police and other agencies,” the official said.
