MUMBAI: Two men from Nepal landed in police custody after they were found carrying a fake NOC for a job in the UAE.

According to reports in Indian media, they were found of paying 40,000 Indian rupees each to a Delhi-based agent to help them get visas and a NOC from the Nepal Embassy at New Delhi required flying from India to the UAE.

The two —Karan Mahara (30) and Lal Singh Bhat (23)— claimed to be victims.

The two were stopped by immigration officials at Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport on February 10 before they could board the UAE flight, Times of India reported.

“Officials found the NOC fake which they got confirmed from the Nepal Embassy… We are getting information about the two agents, Anil Lama and Kapangi from New Delhi, who gave them with the fake NOC,” said a police official.

Sahar police senior inspector Dinkar Shilvate said immigration officials found the NOC fake after consulting with Nepal Embassy, the report added.

In the complaint, immigration official Vijay Chavan said, “We found the seal on the NOC too light. We mailed it to the Nepal Embassy. They replied saying they had not issued them.”
