New Delhi: A woman was arrested at IGI Airport
here for allegedly carrying a country-made pistol while she
was on way to board a Mumbai-bound flight, police said on Monday.

Vandana Kaushal was to catch a flight to Mumbai from the
Indira Gandhi International Airport here yesterday when she
was intercepted after a fire-arm was found in her check-in
baggage during security checking.

According to a senior police official, the security
officials at the airport detected the fire-arm inside her
check-in baggage during screening and asked her to produce
documents regarding it. However, she could not produce any
valid document.

"Kaushal took out the country-made pistol and a live
cartridge from the baggage. A case under Arms Act has been
registered against her," the official said.

She was produced in a court which granted her bail for a
surety of Rs 10,000.
