Express News ServiceBENGALURU: A 27-year-old Mysuru resident was caught at the Kempe Gowda International (KIA) airport on Saturday morning for carrying a live bullet in his hand baggage.
According to an airport source, a prohibited bore (bullet) was detected during the screening of his hand baggage.
The 5.56 mm bullet is lighter compared to other bullets like 7.62 mm and hence more bullets can be carried, he said.
Abhishek has been booked under Section 25 of the Indian Arms Act for carrying prohibited arms and ammunition, the source said.
A similar incident was reported a month ago at KIA when a passenger on board an Indigo flight from Bangalore to Jharkhand was caught carrying two live bullets in his hand baggage.
