There definitely was something off with this whole saga. The Indian passengers all had correct travel documents for the UAE and Nicaragua. But clearly the fact that the A340 dropped into a fairly obscure airport on the outskirts of Paris for fuel, means they were trying to avoid scrutiny.

This reminds me a lot of the Belarussians suddenly granting Iraqis visa free access to Belarus. They then chartered several large aircraft to fly Iraqis into Belarus where they were promptly bussed to the Polish border and shown where to cross over. Incredibly sad how economic migrants, and indeed genuine asylum seekers are weaponised effectively.
