BANGALORE: The Cubbon Park police arrested a person, who allegedly tried to procure visa to Germany by submitting fabricated documents. The accused Panicker Ajay, is a native of Kochi in Kerala.

Police said Ajay had taken a woman identified as Tintu Urmise, along with him and introduced her as his wife.  On Thursday, he went to German Consulate on Residency Road and attended an interview to obtain visa to Frankfurt. They claimed that they wanted to go for business purposes. After the interview, the duo left the office and the consulate officials found that the documents submitted were fake.

“Ajay’s passport had the seals of France and Indian immigration centres and verifications revealed that the seals were fake. Also, the documents stating that Ajay and Urmise were married, turned out to be fake. The officials summoned Ajay and informed the police. When he arrived at the consulate, he was arrested,” police explained.

“Investigations revealed that Ajay hailed from Kerala and had come to the city in search of a job in 2006 after completing PUC. He had worked with the American Express and was presently working as a senior travel associate with BCD travel company in Indiranagar. He revealed that his friend, Mahesh, who is also from Kerala and is working with a travel agency, had helped in creating fake documents. Urmise helped him in getting the visa,” police added.

The Cubbon Park police registered a case and are on the look out for Urmise and Mahesh, who are absconding.
