Former Civil Aviation Minister Rajus baggage left at Delhi airport

New Delhi: The baggage of former Civil Aviation Minister Ashok Gajapathi Raju, who took an Air India flight to Visakhapatnam, was left at the airport here yesterday as it could not be loaded in the aircraft after security screening, according to officials.
A Delhi airport spokesperson on Tuesday said the bag was checked in around "12 minutes before scheduled departure of Air Indias Delhi-Visakhapatnam flight AI 451".

Since the check in baggage of Raju had to go through regulated security screening, it could not be loaded at the aircraft, he said in a statement.

An Air India official yesterday said the former ministers baggage could not reach the aircraft on time because of slow movement of baggage belt at the Delhi airport.
Later, the baggage was taken on an IndiGo flight to Vijaywada which left some 45 minutes after the Air India flight, the official added.
