After Mr Ido landed at Mumbai airport, the CISF, during security check, found a satellite phone in his luggage following which he was apprehended and later arrested, the officer said.
Mr Ido, who was in India on a tourist visa, was scheduled to go to Goa through a connecting flight. He was on Wednesday produced before a local court which granted him bail on a surety of Rs 25,000.
According to sources, Mr Ido told the police he was not aware that satellite phones are banned in India.
The handlers of the 10 Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorists had apparently used these phones during the Mumbai terror attack in November 2008. The Bureau of Civil Aviation also issued a circular in 2012 to all airports in the country to detain passengers carrying satellite phones, the police said.
