CISF personnel at the Mangaluru International Airport detained a 63-year-old man, who was found to be in possession of 15 live bullets in his baggage on Saturday.
The detained, Ismail is a businessman by profession. He was to take a flight to Nagpur when found that he was carrying the bullets in his bag. He was later handed over to Bajpe police station.
Investigations revealed Ismail possessed a gun license and that he had deposited his 0.32 revolver at Beltangady police station on April 4. However, an absent-minded Ismail had forgotten to remove the bullets from his bag. Which lead to a small chaotic situation at the airport.
Since it was established that the incident was merely due to oversight, the police released Ismail later.
