BANGKOK: A Pakistani passport forger whose fakes may have been sold to Islamic State operatives has been arrested in Thailand, police said Friday, ending a career that helped people slip into Europe illegally, reports AFP.

Mohammad Iqbal, 52, was arrested on January 14 in a Bangkok suburb in possession of Singaporean and Indian fake passports as well as plates and laminates to forge entry visas to France, Italy and Spain.

“He has worked on faking documents for a long time using Thailand as his base,” Commander of the Immigration Bureau Lt-Gen Suttipong Vongpint told reporters in Bangkok.
