6 Sri Lankans arrested on Kuwait Airport with 12 forged passports


Six Sri Lankans – three men and three women – who were in transit at the Kuwait International Airport on their way to the UK have been taken into custody for possessing 12 forged passports, reports Al-Rai daily.



The Sri Lankans reportedly came to Kuwait via India.

However, the security authorities were waiting for the suspects after receiving a tip-off from secret sources.

They were seized in the transit hall and subjected to inspection and police found on each of them three passports (including the one which they traveled on)

– the original passport, one fake Indian passport and a Malaysian passport stamped with a forged visa to Britain.



A security source said the six persons confessed they were on their way to Britain using Malaysian passports. They also said they had forged the passports in Sri Lanka.
