Aug 02, 2019 08:18 IST

Former Maldives vice president Ahmed Adeeb Abdul Ghafoor was detained by Indian security agencies in the waters off Tamil Nadu’s Thoothukudi coast on Thursday. He was reportedly trying to sneak into the country disguised as a crew member of a tugboat. Security officials who boarded the tug boat found that Adeeb did not have valid travel documents, officials of Thoothukkudi Port said. In New Delhi, external affairs ministry spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said Ghafoor was denied entry into India.
