Two GoAir executives identified as Sachin Manav and Satish Pal were arrested from Aerocity on Monday October 1, for allegedly stealing a consignment of mobile phones while posing as passengers at the Indira Gandhi International (IGI) airport earlier this month.
The two executives, employed as senior ramp officers at Go Air, has been serving at the Delhi airport since 2011, and Satish Pal (40), working since 2015.
The incident came to front when a case was filed on the complaint of a manager of a cargo company reporting theft of their mobile consignment containing 53 phones. According to the cops, the incident happened on September 19, when the two accused officers of GoAir stole the consignment which was sent from Patna to T2 of Delhi Airport.
Deputy Commissioner of police (IGI airport) Sanjay Bhatia said, “The manager said that his shipment had arrived by a Go Air flight G8-229 from Patna at Terminal 2 of the Delhi airport. The complainant mentioned that due to space shortage, a part of the consignment was shifted to the warehouse. It said that at the time of unloading the consignment in the warehouse, it was found that the shipment had only 30 bags and one bag which contained 53 phones was found missing,” the DCP said.
Bhatia said during probe, CCTV footage from the cargo area was scanned but no clue was found. “Later, a raid was conducted and two men were caught from Aerocity. They were found allegedly using the stolen mobile phones. When questioned, they allegedly confessed they are working as ramp officers with Go Air.”
