On September 19, a case was registered regarding theft of mobile phones from a cargo shipment that had arrived in Delhi onboard a GoAir flight from Patna.
The complainant stated that cargo shipment was offloaded and due to space constraint, it was sent to warehouse on a truck. But at the time of unloading the cargo in the warehouse, it was found that a bag containing 53 mobile phones was missing and it was suspected that it had been stolen while unloading the shipment, police said.
According to police, all areas in the airport and other stations were searched but the shipment could not be found. CCTV footage were also scanned but no clue could be found.
