A Border Security Force (BSF) trooper was Saturday detained by security personnel at the Agartala airport following the recovery of some bullets from his baggage, police said.


"BSF Naik (NCO) Nanda Singh was going to his home in Rajasthan by a private airline when he was detained by the CISF (Central Industrial Security Force) troopers at the airport after recovery of some live cartridges from his hand baggage," a police spokesman told reporters.

Later, the CISF handed over him to police which presented him before a local court.

The court released Singh on bail as "the court found no criminality for carrying the bullet with him," the spokesman added.
