Airport security forces detained a man with a shotgun from the domestic terminal of Dhaka airport for not following the due procedure this afternoon.
The detainee Nurul Islam, bodyguard of Probashi Palli Group’s chairman, was attempting to pass the domestic terminal of Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport with the shotgun to board on a flight for Jessore around 5:30pm, police said.
Police detained Nurul along with the shotgun for not following due procedure, Nur-e-Azam Mia, officer-in-charge of the Biman Bandar Police Station, told the correspondent.
Earlier, on March 11, Civil Aviation Authority of Bangladesh (CAAB) detained a union parishad chairman with a pistol at the domestic terminal of the airport.
The incident took place six days after a bag containing a revolver of film star Ilias Kanchon went undetected during luggage scanning at the domestic terminal of the airport on March 5.
Ilias Kanchon, also road safety campaigner, on March 5 said that he was flying from Dhaka to Chattogram and passed the heavy luggage scanner undetected. Kanchan had a licensed 9mm pistol with nine live rounds. He produced legal documents of possession and received back the firearm at Chattogram.
Later, on March 7, Civil Aviation Ministry said actor Ilias Kanchan lied about his firearm passing through the airport scanners undetected.
