According to the report, an engineering student, Adarsh Kumar Singh booked a flight to Lucknow, his hometown. He reached the airport, checked into it and changed his mind at the last minute. The cabin crew staff informed the CISF personnel about this, and they intercepted him to find out why not to take the flight.

When questioned, Singh reportedly said that he was a terrorist and that the flight on which he booked a ticket would not go to Lucknow. This created chaos, and CISF officials immediately alerted the airport staff along with Lucknow airport officials.

He was immediately arrested and went through an extensive interrogation and anti-sabotage check. However, police found that he lied to the CISF staff as he did not want to go to Lucknow in fear of his parents for scoring low marks in his engineering course. He was later released on bail.
