An Iranian couple was arrested in India while trying to board a British Airways flight because they were carrying forged Israeli passports.

The husband and wife were also carrying their original Iranian passports when they were arrested on 24 January at Chennai Airport, the New Indian Express reported.

They had met and married while working in India and had planned to settle in the US. The couple reportedly thought it would be easier to enter the US with Israeli passports. Airport police told the newspaper that the passports were forged in Goa in India, where the man was working.
