Hyderabad: A Tanzanian couple has been
detained for carrying a revolver and seven live cartridges at
the Rajiv Gandhi International airport in Shamshabad here.
Shande Solam Mbege and his wife Monica from Tanzania
were boarding a flight last night when security personnel
found live bullets during the luggage scan, airport sources
said today.

The bullets were found in the luggage of Monica. The duo
arrived here on February four for treatment as Shande was
suffering from paralysis. After treatment at a hospital here
they were on their return journey, they said.
Though Shande has a license for his revolver, carrying
bullets without proper permission in our country is
an illegal act, sources added.

The couple was detained by the airport police.
