Panaji: Bantwal man held for travelling on fake passport

Panaji: A man from Karnataka, who alighted at Goa’s Dabolim International Airport from Qatar, was on Monday arrested for travelling on a forged passport, police said.

Thouseef Hemad Bantwal, a resident of Mangaluru, arrived in Goa from Qatar by a Qatar Airways flight and was on his way to his hometown when he was arrested.

“When he arrived at the immigration desk for clearance, an official inspected his passport and saw that he had replaced his photo and information and was using the identity of one Hargopal Singh,” a police spokesperson said.

The man has been booked under the Passport Act and under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code.


  1. Original Pai-smiles..

    Dear Atheist Pai mam, What about the famous ‘Sas bi kabhi bahu thi’ model cum HRD minister holding office from university of Haravard?

    Can you ask ‘Pradhan Sevak’ with 56 inch inflated chest, why does he need fake degree holders to run ‘Good governance’?

    Jai hind

  2. Dear ‘Black flag’ Pandita,
    It’s wrong whoever does it. I have the intellectual honesty to admit all the wrong things while you are interested only in one side. This is why you can’t be trusted.

    • Original Paimaam of USA, the ace self certification expert, adds one more certificate for himself!

      Now, he claims that he has the “Intellectual Honesty”. A man, who wants to help RSS to divide Hindus and Muslims on the beef issue, with the ulterior motive to fortify their Hindu Vote Bank, and who has no honesty to admit the fact that even Modi’s ‘altar ego’, Swami Vivekananda, too has declared that beef eating is the normal ” Rig Vedic Arya Sanatan Parampara”.

      “intellectual Honesty” is a shame, if what Paimaam claims is a fact.
