Bengaluru: A Goa-bound man was apprehended at the Bengaluru airport on Tuesday for allegedly carrying a revolver in his baggage, an official said.

UC Suvarna, a resident of Bengaluru, was going through the security checks at the airport around 2.30 pm when Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) personnel detected a pistol-like object in his hand baggage, the official said.

"A revolver was recovered from the handbag of the man who is a resident of Bengaluru. He was handed over to the police as he could not produce valid documents for carrying the firearm," he added.
