Kolkata: AN abandoned spectacles case today sent the security personnel into a tizzy at NSC Bose International Airport in Kolkata.

The abandoned spectacles case was spotted on the elevated departure arena of the swanky new terminal building around 3.30 pm.

The Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) personnel first asked passengers in the vicinity whether it belonged to any one of them. On getting a negative response, the area was vacated of people and a sniffer dog was pressed into service suspecting that the spectacles case might contain explosives.

With the sniffer sending out no alert, the security personnel picked up the spectacles case and opened it find nothing hazardous. By then a bomb squad had reached the spot but their services were not required.

Police believe that some elderly passenger or visitor dropped the spectacles case by mistake.
