New Delhi, Apr 6 (PTI) An Afghan national has been apprehended at the Delhi airport for allegedly using a fake travel ticket to enter the terminal area, official sources said.

Mohammed Bashir S was apprehended yesterday when CISF personnel found him walking inside Terminal-3 (T3) building of the Indira Gandhi International (IGI) airport, they said.

He was found to be acting suspiciously and was intercepted, the sources said.
