CISF nabs youth with 6 live cartridges at Pune airport

A 22-year-old man was nabbed by CISF personnel from the security hold area of the Pune airport on Sunday afternoon after six live cartridges were found in his hand baggage.
Sources said Nitish Tyagi was on his way to Delhi from Pune and was set to board a SpiceJet flight (SG184) at 4.05pm. He was apprehended around 2.30pm.
"The Pune airport is under the category of hypersensitive airport of the CISF, and security here is always tight. The man had checked in and was in the security hold area where CISF personnel were checking his hand baggage on the X-ray scanner. The officer on duty spotted something suspicious and told Tyagi to open his hand baggage. During the checks, six live cartridges of .32 bore were recovered from his bag. The man was detained for questioning by the CISF, but couldn't give a satisfactory explanation for the bullets. He was handed over to the Vimantal police station," a source in the airport told TOI, adding that this did not cause any flight delays.
