According to the Hindustan Times website, the suspect travelled to at least three countries in the last five years with this document.
The man also confessed that he travelled to the UK in 2010 on a student visa and that, "for a long time", he stayed there working illegally.
In 2018, he managed to travel to Portugal, where he bought a fake passport that allowed him to travel to other countries. With that document, he not only returned to India without any problems but travelled to France and back to the UK. The authorities suspect that he may have made other trips.
In the passport, the suspect was identified as Sultan Fakir Mohammed.
The man was caught on Wednesday on his way back from Paris after his passport was flagged as a fake.
