CISF Intercepts Three Passengers with Suspicious Medicines at IGI Airport Terminal 3

New Delhi: On Saturday evening, security personnel from the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) stationed at Terminal 3 of the Indira Gandhi International (IGI) Airport in New Delhi apprehended three passengers suspected of carrying contraband. The individuals, identified as Basid, Mubashir Jamal, and Kayfee, all Indian nationals, were intending to travel to Kabul via Sharjah on Air Arabia Airlines flight No. G9-466, scheduled to depart at 18:20 hrs.

Upon noticing suspicious behavior, CISF officers diverted the passengers to a designated area for random checks. During the inspection of their luggage, security personnel utilized X-ray imaging technology (X-BIS machine) to screen the contents. The images obtained raised concerns, prompting a thorough physical examination of the baggage.

During the physical inspection, security personnel discovered a substantial quantity of various types of medicines concealed within the luggage. The estimated value of the seized medicines amounted to approximately INR 52 lakh. Notably, the passengers failed to furnish any supporting documentation or justification for carrying such a large quantity of medication.

Prompt action was taken by CISF officials, who promptly informed senior officers and customs authorities about the discovery. Following standard procedures, the passengers, along with the confiscated medicines, were handed over to Customs officials for further investigation and appropriate legal action.

The incident underscores the vigilance and diligence of security personnel at airports in detecting and preventing illicit activities. Such proactive measures are essential in safeguarding the integrity and security of air travel, ensuring the safety of passengers and the public at large.
