New Delhi: There's been another security breach at the Delhi airport. A Go Air passenger passed through airport security undetected with eight kg gold. The gold was finally found when the passenger landed in Guwahati

The passenger has been detained at the Guwahati airport.

The incident happened just a few days after a Kingfisher passenger was allowed to enter the terminal and board a flight on a one-month old boarding pass.

On February 10 at 5.55 am, 29-year-old Ankush Wadhera entered Delhi's T3 terminal to board a Kingfisher flight to Kolkata.

A frequent flyer, Ankush carried a computerised boarding pass after a web check-in. He passed through CISF security at the terminal entrance, checked in at the Kingfisher counter and boarded the flight without a hitch.

Finding his seat occupied, Ankush checked his boarding pass and found to his horror that he was travelling on a one month old ticket.
