was allowed to board an aircraft of a private airline at the IGI airport here on the basis of a month-old boarding pass.

Terminal-3 of the IGI airport and was allowed to board a
Kolkata-bound Kingfisher flight.

it was found that another traveller was occupying the seat
allotted to him.

computerised web check-in boarding pass dated January 10 which

confirming his eligibility for travel and properly verifying
his identity prior to travel.
