Ex-JD(S) MLA’s revolver seized inside Kempegowda airport | Bengaluru News – Times of India

BENGALURU: Central Industrial Security Force sleuths on Saturday detained former JD(S) MLA Anand Asnotikar at Kempegowda International Airport (KIA) for carrying a licenced revolver without prior permission. Airport police have registered a non cognizable report (NCR) and seized the revolver.
Asnotikar was scheduled to board a flight to Goa, which was to depart at 11am. Sources said the revolver was found in the hand luggage during security check at 9.45am.
“CISF staff questioned Asnotikar and he claimed that he forgot to mention about it as he was in a hurry to reach Karwar,” sources said. Police arrived at the spot and took charge of the situation. In his statement to police, Asnotikar said his mother, who lives in Karwar, was unwell and in a hurry to catch the flight, he forgot about the revolver kept in the luggage.
“The revolver will be returned to Asnotikar once he produces the licence,” said police. “If a person taking a flight wants to carry such arms, he should approach the CISF with a written requisition,” an official said.
