Airport Security Asked IPS Officer To Open Bag. Inside They Found… You’ll Never Guess What




IPS officer Arun Bothra was asked to open his hand baggage at Jaipur airport.

Senior IPS officer Arun Bothra has left Twitter in stitches with his latest post. On Wednesday, Mr Bothra, Transport Commissioner of Odisha, shared a picture of a suitcase filled with green peas. He revealed that the picture was taken at Jaipur airport, where security officials asked him to open his hand baggage for further inspection, possibly after scanners picked up something unusual inside.

Opening the suitcase revealed that it was choc-a-bloc full of fresh peas – bought at Rs 40 per kilogram, the IPS officer said.

“Security staff at Jaipur airport asked to open my handbag,” he captioned the picture, adding a poker-face emoji at the end. It is not clear whether Mr Bothra was joking or not, but his post has definitely amused social media users. Take a look:
