A 19-year-old Chinese national was detained for questioning on Wednesday at the airport in Chennai after he was found allegedly possessing a fake air ticket, police said.
The man used the fake ticket to enter the airport to see off his Hong Kong-bound girlfriend in the morning and was nabbed by the CISF personnel who questioned him when he tried to exit, the police said.
The foreigner reportedly told the personnel he had 'canceled' his trip but the officials checked his ticket and found it to be fake, they said.
Following this, he was handed over to the airport police, they said.
