A traveller was deported back to Ahmedabad from Dubai airport on Saturday after officials there suspected that his passport was forged. A Himmatnagar resident Jayshankar Patel arrived on Saturday and was then quizzed by immigration officials at the airport.
“When we verified his passport, it was found that it was original. He was then interrogated for a while but we found nothing suspicious and he was handed over to Sardarnagar police stationofficials,” said an immigration official. Police officials are now investigating if Patel was hiding his original identity or had got the passport issued on a fake name.
