New Delhi, Sep 21: A suspicious object was found during the screening of a passenger while he was trying to board an IndiGo flight. Bureau of Civil Aviation Security investigating confirmed that the object was found “before loading into the cargo bay of Indigo flight, not pax screening”. Three days ago, a suspicious object was found from a man’s luggage while he was trying to board another IndiGo flight at Mangalore airport. More details are awaited.
The flight from Mangalore to Dubai was delayed following the discovery of the suspicious item. The man was travelling to the United Arab Emirates. Sources said that it could be an attempt to examine security at the airport.
“IndiGo’s alert security screener staff at Mangalore caught a suspect carrying alleged cellphone bomb today. The matter has been reported to the local police. Since it is a sensitive security matter we have nothing more to share,” IndiGo later tweeted.
