Kochi, Feb 13 (UNI) Three foreign nationals were detained for questioning at the Nedumbaserry International Airport, near here, today after being deported from Kuwait.
Airport officials said the three men were being questioned by the Immigration department and officials of other security agencies for establishing their identity.
They said the three men were carrying Mexican passports, identifying them as Antonio Lopez Juan (42) Javier Sanchez Alberto (20), and Atonio Lopez Ernesto (16). They had left from Nedumbaserry Airport on February 11 for Kuwait en route to France.
However, the emigration officials at Kuwait had found them to be suspects as they reportedly could not understand any Spanish. The three were then deported to Nedumbaserry today.
Airport officials said the Mexican Embassy in New Delhi had been informed.
The three had reportedly arrived in New Delhi on January 23 this year, as per the stamps on their passports. However, there was some doubt about the authenticity of the arrival stamps on the passports.
