Custom officials would seek status report from police regarding Pakistani national Arif Mohammad, who was held at Sri Guru Ramdas international airport after recovery of seven cartridges, before initiating any inquiry to know whether there were any lapses or not on their part, said deputy commissioner, customs, Attari, RK Duggal on Sunday.
Arif, along with other delegates, had arrived in India via Attari land border on Friday to attend trade fair in Delhi. He was to board a plane to Delhi but was held after CISF personals found cartridges in his luggage even as Arif had told that he had arms license but had mistakenly put bullets in his luggage.
Duggal said Arif's baggage was thoroughly checked at Attari but there were no bullets in his baggage. He expressed the possibility that Arif might have kept the bullets in his coat's pocket, which he could have later put in his luggage. He said according to passenger frisking norms, personal search was not carried out with every passenger.
