A fake passport and visa racket has been busted with the arrest of five persons, including three Sri Lankan nationals, and fake visa and stamps seized from them, Indian media reports.

A special team arrested three persons, who were the main accused, yesterday (June 15th) after probing into a tip-off that they were allegedly helping fellow Lankans and others procure fake passports as well as visas through fraudulent means.

They had migrated to Tamil Nadu from Sri Lanka several years ago and they had in the past also served jail terms in connection with fake passport cases, police sources reveals.

The accused charged Rs 30,000 per passport and Rs 2-4 lakh for a visa, reportedly. Over 40 fake visa stamps, 28 fake passports, electronic equipment’s used for preparing the travel documents, lamination machines and mobile phones were recovered.

Tamil Nadu police are conducting further investigation into the incident.
