An Indian national claiming to work with a Bollywood company was charged with visa fraud on arrival at a US airport, media reported.
Sukhpal Veer Singh arrived at Kennedy Airport from Kuwait with a visa issued by the US Embassy in New Delhi that had been revoked last month “due to irregularities in the application”.
He listed his employer as Seven Star Film Productions, but when pressed by Customs and Border Protection officers, admitted he was unemployed. He is charged with visa fraud, New York Daily News reported.
An official complaint for visa fraud was filed on Monday at the Brooklyn Federal Court.
Stating that he was a production manager for Bollywood studio “Seven Star Film Productions”, Singh admitted to Customs and Border Protection officers that it wasn’t true that he was now unemployed.
In February 2013, an Indian national, Nitinkumar Chandubhai Patel, claiming to be scouting for filming locations for a Bollywood company, was charged with visa fraud at the same airport after discrepancies in his story. He was later found to be a farmer.
