Indian authorities arrested an Indian national with 31 Guatemalan passports at the New Dehli airport on Tuesday, Guatemala’s El Periodico newspaper reported. The man, Adil Vali Mohammed, is said to work for a network of human traffickers that channels mostly Indians through Guatemala on their way to the United States. The immigrants are housed in Guatemala before making their way to Canada and the United States by land, the newspaper said. Guatemalan networks have long sold fake passports to Asians seeking to go to Europe or the United States. Authorities say this is a new route for human trafficking networks.
