Chennai, Aug 9 (UNI) A Sri Lankan national was arrested for possessing a fake passport at the Anna International Airport here, police said today.
R Kumaresan (29), hailing from Jaffna in Sri Lanka, came here last night from Tiruchirapalli, where he had been staying for the last one year, to board a Chennai-Toronto Jet Airways flight.
