Man caught with 10 live bullets at Delhi's Indira Gandhi International airport

A man was apprehended on Monday at Delhi's Indira Gandhi International airport for allegedly carrying 10 live bullets in his bag, an official said.

I Hiramani was going through the security checks at the Indira Gandhi International airport at around 7:00 am when a Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) personnel detected few "bullet-like objects" in his luggage, said the senior official involved in airport security.

"Ten live bullet rounds of 32-calibre were recovered from his bag. He was handed over to the police as he could not produce the valid documents for carrying it," he added.

The man was supposed to take a flight to Bengaluru, he said.

This is not the first time that something like this has happened at the airport. Previously, a flight from Delhi had to make an emergency landing at Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi airport due to a mobile-like device that had triggered suspicion and panic.
