The MPCD team also detained two women who were leaving the Airport for a foreign employment, suspecting genuineness of their documents.

The women, who were leaving the country for the first time for overseas employment, had re-entry stamped visa.

The two women were detained as they had never been abroad earlier, but had possessed labour permits issued for the second time, the Rastriya Samachar Samiti has quoted MPCD Chief SSP Sarvendra Khanalas saying.
