MLA arrested at Madurai airport for carrying bullets
Madurai: The airport security at Madurai on Friday seized a box containing 21 bullets from the Aravakurichi DMK MLA K C Palanichamy and handed him over to the police.

However, the MLA was let off after he told the police that his Personal Assistant had inadvertently put the bullet box in his personal baggage instead of the medicine box.

The Superintend of Police asked him to give a written statement before ordering his release.

The MLA was returning to Chennai from Sankarankoil where he had stayed for the by-poll campaign.

He was to board the Jet Airways flight to Chennai, when the security personnel checked his hand baggage and found the box containing bullets.
