New Delhi, August 4 

A passenger bound for Bengaluru was apprehended by the CISF at the Delhi airport for allegedly carrying a live bullet round in his luggage, officials said on Wednesday.

They said the man was supposed to take a Vistara Airlines flight on Tuesday noon, but Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) personnel stopped him after they detected the ammunition during his security check at the terminal-3 of the Indira Gandhi International (IGI) Airport.

As carrying arms and ammunition is banned inside an aircraft and after the passenger could not furnish a government authorisation for carrying the live bullet, he was offloaded and handed over to the local police that booked him under sections of the Arms Act, they said.
