Bomb disposal and detection teams rushed to Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGIA), after an unattended bag was reported on Friday. The bag contained over Rs 2 lakh both in Indian and foreign currency.

The incident took place last night at around eight o’clock when a CISF jawan detected the unattended bag lying near a pillar at arrival area of T3, officials at the airport said.

Soon after, they said, CISF called in the bomb disposal and detection teams for anti-sabotage checks on the bag and assorted currencies worth over Rs 2 lakh in Indian and foreign currency– from Europe Thailand, Bhutan, Indonesian, Hong Kong, China, Singaporean and Canada — were recovered.

The bag was restored to Dorji after due verification, they said.
