New Delhi: Two women nationals of Luxembourg allegedly paid their 'visa-on-arrival' fee at the airport here with fake Indian currency notes, police said on Friday.
The two women, along with a child, arrived at the IGI airport here on the interventing night of July 14 and 15 and got their 'Visa-on-Arrival' after paying the fee to the immigration officer, a complaint filed by the official with police said.
The matter came to light when the official deposited the cash at the SBI branch in the MEA account on July 16. The bank staff, after scrutiny, found that nine of the Rs 1,000 denomination currency notes were fake.
After going through CCTV footage, it was found that two women Luxembourg nationals -- Duri Corinne and Duri Valerie, accompanied by a child Duri Bruce, had paid the currency notes and all the three were given 'Visa on Arrival'.
The officer claimed he was told by the ladies that the currency notes were exchanged at the airport in Luxembourg.
"The two Luxembourg nationals have cheated upon Indian Immigration Authorities by making use of fake counterfeit currency notes," the complaint said.
They were expected to leave India on July 27 by Jet Airways flight (9W 230) as they have return tickets for that day, the official said.
