Man carrying seven bullets apprehended at IGI Airport

New Delhi, Dec 3 (PTI) A Port Blair-bound passenger has been apprehended by CISF personnel at the Delhi airport for allegedly carrying seven live cartridges in his baggage, a security official said on Tuesday.

The bullets were detected during the baggage search of Ashu Varshney at the Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGIA) around 4 am, the official said.

'Seven live bullets of 8 mm calibre were recovered from the bag of the passenger. He was scheduled to take an Air India flight to Port Blair,' he said.

The traveller was not allowed to board the flight and handed over to the Delhi Police as he could not produce any document for possessing the ammunition.
