The security forces at the Indira Gandhi International Airport in New Delhi nabbed a foreign national with 12 parrots on Tuesday.
The parrots were then handed over to custom officials at IGI’s Terminal 3.
When the Central Industrial Security Force ( CISF ) were
scanning luggage, they came across unusual visuals in a bag of a passenger. The bag was pulled for a physical check. Twelve parrots were then found in a carton inside the bag.
The passenger was later identified as Anvarjon Rakhmatjonov – an Uzbekistan national. He was bound for Tashkent by Uzbekistan Airlines.
Upon an enquiry, neither he replied satisfactorily nor produced any valid documents for carrying live birds.
Later, the said foreign passenger along with the recovered parrots was handed over to customs Officials for further legal action in the matter.
