According to a police source, the three youths - Kuldeep, his friend Ankur Sharma and one other - were brought to IGI terminal-3 by a cheat who had promised them jobs at the airport. "Kuldeep is a resident of Dakshinpuri area of southeast Delhi. He works at a CNG service station in the area. A man, who claimed to be a wing commander and a regular at the CNG service station, had befriended the whole station staff. He had promised Kuldeep a government job at the airport in lieu of money," said the police source.

The official added that on Wednesday, the cheat called Kuldeep near Hyatt Regency at around 11 am. Kuldeep had withdrawn Rs 20,000, his friend, Rs 8,000, for this purpose. From there the cheat took them to IGI airport. The cash was handed over to the cheat by Kuldeep and his friends. After reaching the airport, he asked them to wait for a few minutes and went inside on the pretext of meeting some people, but did not return.

Kuldeep and his friends approached the CISF and narrated the whole incident to them, after which they were detained by CISF personnel for security reasons. Meanwhile, speaking to MiD DAY, Ajay, Kuldeep's brother, said that the trio had not been set free by special cell officials till late on Thursday evening. "I am taking dinner for my brother and his friends, who are being interrogated by special cell officials. I don't know why they have not been set free till now," Ajay said.
