Sahar police of Mumbai recently arrested a 28-year-old woman who gave passport details to hide a secret Goa trip she had taken from her family last year. She went on a trip with a friend.
When Ambar Sayad was returning to Dubai on 19 February, an immigration counter official noticed that his arrival date from Dubai last year was 14 March on record, but on his passport, 20 March was shown.
The immigration officer referred the issue to his superior and Sayad was questioned about the “change” of the arrival date on his passport. She initially tried to pose the question, but later broke down and revealed that she had changed the date using a rubber stamp to hide a secret trip to Goa with a friend.
According to Sahar police officials, Saeed had been working in Dubai for the past three years. Last year, Sayad arrived from Dubai on 14 March and immediately left for Goa for the trip. She returned home on 20 March.
Since Sayad wanted to hide the trip from his family, he used a rubber stamp to change the arrival date from Dubai to 20 March.
When Sayad was leaving for Dubai again on February 19, an immigration officer found that the dates on his record did not march the one mentioned in his passport. He was handed over to the police on charges of forgery and cheating.
Later, he was produced in a court which sent him on police custody remand till 22 February. Police officials have requested the court to extend the remand as they have not yet recovered the rubber stamp which was used to change the date of arrival.
