New Delhi, Dec 29 (PTI) An Afghanistan national has been apprehended by the CISF at the Delhi airport for allegedly carrying about Rs 15 lakh worth foreign currency illegally, a senior official said on Tuesday.

Abdul Wali Rohani, bound for Kabul, was intercepted during security checks at the terminal-III of the Indira Gandhi International (IGI) Airport Monday noon.

Afghan currency worth Rs 3 lakh and USD 17,800 -- totalling about Rs 15 lakh -- was recovered from his jacket and handbag, they said.
