A 24-year-old man allegedly impersonating an elderly man bound for Canada has been apprehended by the CISF at the Delhi international airport, a senior officer of the force said on Wednesday.

Gursewak Singh, with dyed hair and beard, was intercepted on Tuesday evening at Terminal 3 of the Indira Gandhi International (IGI) Airport and has been handed over to Delhi Police, he said.

The man was first checked by CISF personnel as his activities were found suspicious. He initially produced his identity in the form of a passport bearing the name Rashvindar Singh Sahota, 67. He was supposed to board an Air Canada flight flying out of Delhi on Tuesday, the officer said.

"The man's appearance, voice and skin texture seemed significantly younger than the details provided in the passport. Closer observation revealed that he had dyed his hair and beard white and was wearing glasses to appear older," he said.

The passenger, following further interrogation, disclosed his correct identity as Gursewak Singh, 24, and the photo of a passport in this name was also found in his mobile phone, the officer said.

As the case was of forged passport and impersonation, the passenger was handed over to Delhi Police, he said.
