A Ranchi-bound passenger was apprehended Monday by the CISF at the Delhi airport for allegedly carrying two live bullets in his baggage, an official said.

A CISF official, deputed at the Indira Gandhi International (IGI) Airport to scan the baggage of passengers, detected bullet-like objects on the x-ray monitor on Sunday while checking the bag of passenger A K Sinha.

“Two live bullet rounds of 0.32 mm calibre were recovered from the passenger who was travelling to Ranchi,” the official said.

The passenger was not allowed to take the flight and subsequently handed over to the police as he could not produce any documents for carrying the ammunition, the official said, adding the man was later booked under sections of the Arms Act.
