Immigration officials have arrested a Sri Lankan Tamil youth who tried to go to France on the pretext of traveling to the Maldives using a forged passport. The 31-year-old youth from Jaffna, who was preparing to fly to Dubai yesterday, has arrived at the Immigration and Emigration Department after obtaining an air ticket.

The Chief Immigration Officer of the Border Surveillance Unit examined the suspect's passports, visas and airline tickets based on his suspicious movements and behaviour. 

They have noticed several inconsistencies in the documents and have re-examined using the equipment of the Border Surveillance Unit.

It has been revealed that he has pasted a different photograph on the surface of the passport to construct the forged passport. However, on further examination of the suspect his authentic passport with travel plans to visit Maldives has been recovered from his trouser pocket. 

According to Sujeewa Ratnayake, Assistant Controller of the Immigration and Emigration Department of the Katunayake Airport, the Immigration and Emigration authorities arrested the suspect and handed him over to the CID for further investigations.

Further investigations have revealed that the passport issued to a youth in Kattankudi area in Batticaloa has been forged using chemicals to replace the photograph with a photo of the suspect.
