New Delhi: A Hindu woman wearing a burqa caused a security scare at Delhi’s IGI airport on Monday, Hindustan Times reported.

The Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) personnel stopped the woman when she entered Terminal 3 of Delhi airport. The security staff got suspicious as “her Muslim attire did not match with her Hindu name given on the flight ticket”, the report said.

“The incident took place on morning of September 25. At 7:15 am, our intelligence staff noticed the suspicious movement of a burqa-clad woman. During enquiry, it was found that the woman was a 26-year-old Hindu and travelling to Mumbai by Jet airways flight 9W 358. The plane was scheduled to fly at 10:30 am,” a CISF official told Hindustan Times.
