According to the Sahar police, the women have been identified as Alvine Nokam, 33, and Ololie Konhawo, 41. The two have told the police that they wanted to migrate to Europe and were looking for passports for which they contacted an agent through Facebook who charged them 2000 Euros for the passports. They had reached Mumbai on November 13.
“Both the women paid the agent 2000 Euros each for a fake Guatemalan passport,” the official added. At the immigration counter, they furnished passports issued this year by Guatemala’s Director of Migration, and which identified them as nationals of Cameroon.
