India: 8 cellphones missing from cargo of Bhutan Airways.

Bhutan Airways filed a complaint that eight mobile phones had gone missing from their cargo shipment which was sent to Bhutan. They got to know about the missing phones when they found that the same had been replaced with pieces of brick in taped boxes.

Sources said eight Samsung J series cellphones were stolen from the shipment from the IGI Airport cargo hub on June 2. The matter came to light when the shipment reached Bhutan by flight B3 774. According to sources, Samsung phones were packed in 131 boxes. One of those boxes had eight phones missing. The phones were replaced with bricks.

Meanwhile, when asked how they were sure that the theft took place at IGI Airport cargo and not in Bhutan, a senior airline official, on the condition of anonymity, said that while de-boarding the shipment at Bhutan airport, the said consignment box fell open on its own. It was enough for the airline officials to understand that mobiles had been stolen at IGI Airport.

“We are going to meet Delhi police official soon and will provide them some pictures related to our case that will help them to solve this case,” said the official.

An FIR was filed last Saturday and police are investigating the matter. “We are investigating the matter and will take appropriate action as per law,” said a senior police official.

Earlier, Delhi police had arrested two IGI Airport ground staff for stealing valuables from the baggage of passengers. The two men employed by the Air India SATS, which provides ground services at the airport, were nabbed with the help of CCTV footage.
