Three carry liquor bottle, drink on board Mumbai flight

New Delhi: In a serious security breach, three people flying on a Delhi-Mumbai flight on Friday night reportedly carried a bottle of liquor and drank on board.
"A passenger complained to the cabin crew after which the pilot informed the CISF. On landing in Mumbai, police apprehended the passengers," a GoAir spokesman said.
However, sources said the passenger, who complained against the three on the aircraft, reportedly did not give in writing to Mumbai Police. "The three were let off with a warning and a minor fine," said a source.
The GoAir spokesman said the three passengers had flown into Delhi on an international flight and then took the connecting flight to Mumbai from IGI airport's terminal 1D. "Our airline took an apology letter from them for drinking on board," he said. However, how they got a liquor bottle in the flight was yet to be known.
According to aviation security rules globally, liquor bottles cannot be carried on board aircraft. The only exception is international passengers across the world are allowed to buy up to two litres of liquor from duty-free shops in the post-security hold area and then take them on aircraft.
