A 32-year-old man in India who posed as an elderly to evade security check was arrested at a Delhi airport last Monday, Sept. 9.

Jayesh Patel was accosted by personnel of Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) when he attempted to depart from the Indira Gandhi International Airport for New York.

In a report by news agency IANS via NDTV, the man arrived at airport on a wheelchair and was wearing a turban and black-rimmed glasses. He was also believed to have dyed his gray beard so he would look like 81 years old.

The man was cleared by immigration after getting through the first security check.

The report said CISF personnel became suspicious of the man’s voice and his wrinkle-free skin and after further inspection, it was found out the man hid his real identity.

It was later learned that Patel paid an agent to get him fake documents so he could acquire a passport and a US visa. The man used a fake name and a different birthday.

The agent also referred the man to a makeup artist to alter his appearance matching the profile in his documents.

Patel was supposed to pay the agent nearly $42,000 (P2 million) once he arrives in the US.

The agent and the makeup artist have yet to be arrested, the report said.
