    "Three live bullet rounds of 7.65mm calibre were recovered from the passenger identified as A A Choudhary. Choudhary and his wife were not allowed to take the flight and were handed over to the police as he could not produce any documents for carrying the ammunition," the official said, adding the man was later booked under sections of the Arms Act.

    An FIR has been lodged under Indian Arms Act against the passenger.
