Mumbai: A 32-year-old engineer who ripped out the pages from his passport to keep his Maldives trip a secret from his wife was arrested at the  Mumbai airport.


It is said that the man told his wife that he was going on a foreign trip for official work. But instead went to the island nation with his girlfriend.

The wife, however, grew suspicious after the man did not pick up her calls. Panicked by this,  the man had to cut his trip short and return to India.

In order to hide his travel history, the man tore a few pages from his passport. When he landed in Mumbai, he was arrested by the immigration authorities after they noticed that pages 3-6 and 31-34 from his passport were missing.

When questioned, the engineer did not have any valid reason and was handed over to the police, who placed him under arrest on charges of cheating and forgery.


Later it was revealed that he tore the pages to hide his Maldives ‘masti’ from his wife. The man said that he was unaware that damaging a passport is a crime.
