Bag with suspected RDX creates panic at IGI airport

New Delhi, November 1

An unattended bag triggered panic on Friday at the Delhi airport on the suspicion of containing RDX, but officials later said it has been claimed by a passenger who had forgotten it outside the Terminal-3. 

It is almost certain that the bag does not have the explosive and it will be opened in the presence of the claimant, they said. Shahid Hussain contacted airport authorities after over 16 hours of allegedly losing his bag. He said he had forgotten it outside the airport's Terminal-3 after he arrived from Mumbai on a SpiceJet plane, sources said. 

The bag was detected around 1 am by a Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) staffer and has been since kept in an isolated zone with a joint of CISF, the bomb experts of the NSG and forensics keeping it under observation.  — PTI
