Canadian held with 5 bullets at IGI airport

New Delhi: A 60-year-old Canadian man was apprehended at the Delhi airport for allegedly carrying five live bullet rounds in his baggage, an official said today.

A S Dhaliwal was intercepted by a CISF officer who detected the bullets on the x-ray monitor last night while scanning the baggage at the Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGIA), he said.

Five bullets of .32-mm calibre were recovered from the passenger who had a Canadian passport and was travelling to Guangzhou in China from here, the official said.

“The man was not allowed to take the flight and was handed over to the police by the CISF authorities as he could not produce any documents for carrying the ammunition,” he said.
