We are aware of the rule that all of us need to pay an additional charge if we exceed the mentioned check-in luggage weight. This regulation is in action for a long time and is applicable to all airlines and their passengers. Recently, something very strange happened at the Mumbai airport when airline staff asked a female passenger to pay for the extra baggage she was carrying with her. Instead of paying, she gave a bomb threat. Here’s what actually happened!

This flyer was about to catch a flight to Kolkata from Mumbai airport on Monday and she carried two bags with her. She gave both her luggage for check-in, according to a report by Times Now News. The rule is that one passenger can carry only one check-in bag and this began a conversation between her and the airline staff. The staff asked her to pay an additional charge for the second bag as per the rules but the female passenger denied to pay the cost.

Threatening to carry a bomb is such a scary thing to do. A thorough check was conducted after she said about allegedly carrying a bomb in her luggage. The Central Industrial Security Force officials arranged the examination with sniffer dogs. They found out that there was no bomb inside her bag. A police case has been made under Section 336 and Section 505 (2) of the Indian Penal Code.
