The frequency with which airports are refusing to accept checked baggage has noticeably increased recently. While the Mumbai airport fully appreciates the sentimental value linked to various religious things, especially during festive times, some of these ostensibly harmless items can really be extremely dangerous and pose a serious risk to safety and security. 

Spray bottles, lighters, power banks, and e-cigarettes are a few more goods that are regarded as the main offenders. 

Many passengers are unaware of the potential threats these products offer to flight safety when handled or kept inappropriately. These things are frequently known to pose fire risks, explosion risks, or electrical system interference to airplanes. (As per Press release)
