The man, identified as A Bhardwaj, was going through security checks at the Indira Gandhi International (IGI) Airport yesterday when a Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) personnel detected a "bullet-like object" in his cabin luggage, they said.
Two live bullets were recovered from his bag. He was handed over to the police as he could not produce valid documents for carrying the bullets, they said.
