Delhi Police on Saturday registered a case against a 29-year-old mentally unstable man caught running nude on a taxiway at the highly secure Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGI) a day ago, police said.

The accused identified as Arun Rai was reportedly instigated by his friends to scale the wall of the airport from Bijwasan side when he expressed his desire to sit on a plane. A resident of Gurgaon, Rai was booked for criminal trespass at the Palam airport police station.

Rai told the police he scaled a wall near Gate number 20 reportedly manned by Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) guards and entered the airport premises. He was caught around 8 p.m. near Taxiway 28 by a follow-me jeep.

“He was grilled by several agencies before we registered a case,” said O.P. Mishra, deputy commissioner of police (IGI). He was produced in a court and sent to jail. Delhi International Airport Limited (DIAL) denied there was any security breach.
