Remove Curly lines from ID card

How can I remove lines similar to the one present in the picture(green in color on top of face)?

I have seen many methods to remove vertical or horizontal lines but here the lines seems to be curly and also i want to extract information from the image(i.e. the face image part) post the removal of these lines and hence don't want the resulting image to be grayscale.

Any help or suggestion is much appreciated.
