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.
