Power banks, lighters cause chaos at Delhi Airport ahead of long weekend

The GMR-led Dial International Airport Ltd, the airport operator, attributed the delay in baggage clearance to an increased level of dangerous goods particularly power banks and lighters being carried by passengers in checked-in luggage.
BJP Lok Sabha MP Hema Malini was among the passengers whose bags were also stuck in the clearance process.
This incident rate was 30% higher than average days as the rush was more because of the long holiday weekend.
