New Delhi: A man was apprehended at the Delhi airport after 10 live bullets were found in his bag. I Hiramani was going through the security checks at the Indira Gandhi International airport at around 7:00 am when a Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) personnel detected few “bullet-like objects” in his luggage, according to a senior official involved in airport security.
The man was supposed to take a flight to Bengaluru. The passenger was taken to IGI Airport Police Station by CISF and handed over to Delhi Police for further legal action.
The man was supposed to take a flight to Bengaluru, the airport official said. Since the past month, the international airport has witnessed several incidents of passengers carrying unwanted objects in their luggage.
On 20 September, a flight that took off from Delhi made an emergency landing at Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport, after an unclaimed mobile phone was found in the cabin that created a major security scare.
In another instance from 21 August, drone-like objects were spotted on two different occasions at the Indira Gandhi International airport, following which the airport operations had to be halted for almost an hour amid security concerns following the spotting of the objects.
As per the report, the power bank was an IED (Improvised Explosive Device), and it was the seventh such device recovered in less than a week’s time.
