Couple creates panic by abandoning baggage at Delhi airport, throws CISF into a tizzy

The last 24 hours have been a nightmare for Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) guarding the Delhi airport. The plot could be straight out of a movie.
A couple identified as Amit Rajaram Chavan (real name Karan Patel) and his wife Sheetal Amit Chavan (Megha Patel) were scheduled to travel from New Delhi to Munich and onward to Toronto via London  and were to check in with two baggage at airline counter.
But in an interesting twist, the couple did not return to collect their  boarding cards from the Airliner sending CISF into a tizzy.  Adding to the woes, the couple later disappeared without a trace.
CISF which is already on high alert rushed to the spot immediately. The force responded by alerting its entire team. They alerted their surveillance and CCTV teams .
Despite the efforts of CISF,  the two passengers were not seen exiting the terminal building further fuelling suspicion.
The abandoned baggage were immediately screened to check for explosives. However, security checks revealed that the baggage was safe. Faced  with the daunting task of reviewing over 3,000 CCTV cameras installed in the Terminal ,
CISF deployed its crack CCTV monitoring team in the Security Operations Control Centre, who scanned hours of footage to locate the two missing passenger entering a toilet but mysteriously exiting in a different attire .
The couple reportedly discarded their original itinerary instead proceeded to domestic departures  by some domestic flight.
