CISF personnel selected two foreign passengers for random checking of their baggage on October 8 at about 7 am, on profiling basis, at departure Gate-06 of Terminal-2, Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport, Mumbai. During X-BIS screening of their baggage, some doubtful images were observed by the CISF screener. On physical checking of their baggage, 25 kg sandalwood chips in plastic packets were detected.
