Mangaluru, May 27: A 23 year old youth was arrested on Tuesday Morning by the security personnel for illegally entering Mangaluru International Airport.
Iqbal, Resident of Balepuni near Konaje entered the airport illegally to see his family members who boarded an International flight.
He was taken into custody when he was enquired by the security personal while coming out of the airport terminal. Iqbal was later handed over Bajpe police for further Investigation about his intention and background. He was sternly interrogated at the Police station and was later released.
Iqbal had booked his ticket for Mangaluru-Muscat flight for Tuesday along with his parents and two relatives but Iqbal cancelled his Ticket at the last moment owing to his mother’s bad health

Ramesh Hanapur, the Sub Inspector from Bajpe Police Station said "During the Investigation we understood that Iqbal entered into the Airport illegally to see off his parents and had no bad intentions and thus he has been released"
