Chennai-bound passenger held with 13 bullets at KIA

Bengaluru: In this year’s first seizure of ammunition at Bengaluru airport, a passenger carrying 13 live bullets attached to a .32 mm pistol was nabbed when he tried to board a Chennai flight early Saturday. He was handed over to Bengaluru police as he didn’t have a licence.

Sources at Kempegowda International Airport identified the suspect as Nandeswar Lahkar who was scheduled to take IndiGo Airlines flight 6E 6217 at 5.55am. Lahkar reached the Central Industrial Security Force’s security-checking bay around 2am. When his hand luggage was being scanned, CISF sleuths found something amiss. A thorough examination revealed 13 active bullets in his bag compatible with a .32mm handgun.

CISF personnel detained Lahkar and realised he didn’t have a valid weapon licence. He was handed over to Kempegowda International Airport police who will ascertain from where he got the bullets.
