New Delhi: A man was on Saturday arrested at the Indira Gandhi International Airport in the capital for allegedly using a cancelled ticket to gain entry into the international terminal area of the airport to see off a friend.

The incident was reported at about 4:30 AM when a man, identified as Sukhjit S, was noticed roaming suspiciously in the terminal by CISF security personnel, officials said.
