New Delhi, Apr 15 (PTI) A woman from Uzbekistan was apprehended at the Delhi airport for allegedly using a fake ticket to enter the terminal area, officials said today.

K Shakhzoda was intercepted by the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) personnel yesterday as she was about to leave the Terminal-3 building of the Indira Gandhi International (IGI) Airport, they added.

She was stopped and questioned as exiting the terminal area is not usually permitted for passengers, the officials said.

Shakhzoda told the security personnel that she used a cancelled ticket to enter the terminal area to see off his mother, who was travelling to Tashkent, they added.

The woman was subsequently handed over to the police as her ticket was a fake travel document, the officials said.
