By July 21, 2016 0 Comments

As many as 185 passengers were hassled at Sri Guru Ram Dass Jee International Airport, Amritsar, for over three hours after a phone call from Dubai about a suspicious bag on a SpiceJet flight put the security personnel on an alert on Thursday morning.
The SpiceJet flight that reached Amritsar from Dubai at around 9.30am was immediately taken to the isolation bay for search and frisking.
All this happened because of an unclaimed blue bag.

Sources said the goof-up happened at the Dubai airport. A woman did not board the flight but her bag made it to the plane flying to India. It is learnt that the questioning of the woman was on at the Dubai International Airport.
The Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) and police team led by additional deputy commissioner of police Gaurav Garg reached the spot.
Baggage of all the passengers was searched in the isolation bay. The bomb disposal squad of the police and anti-sabotage teams were also rushed to the airport.
