She was about to board a Kingfisher flight Sunday when the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) officials stopped her after they noticed cartridges in her bag as it passed through the X-ray scanner,” said a senior police officer.

When questioned, she was clueless about the cartridges, police said.
