Parents try to smuggle baby in hand luggage
What the heck is on their mind! This is really insane, to think that both parents agreed into this sick idea. If they cannot afford to pay for their kid's passport,visa or airfare, they should have just stayed at home or at least shouldn't have a baby at all.
Sharjah: Customs officials at Sharjah International Airport have arrested an Egyptian man and his wife after they attempted to smuggle their infant son into the UAE in their luggage.
The attempt was discovered on Saturday morning after the man, in his 30s, and his wife arrived at the airport from Egypt.
An investigation was launched after an X-ray machine showed the child was hidden in the hand baggage.
The baby boy, who is just a year old, had no visa, passport or official documents allowing him to enter the UAE.
A police official told Gulf News: “When customs officials saw the baby inside the bag at the X-ray scanner, they were stunned.
"This machine is very dangerous for anyone, let alone a baby in a bag to pass through."
"A case will now be raised against the mother and father, they both have visas to come to the UAE, but they have put the life of their child at risk.”
