Air India said in a statement, ‘Our employee Manoj Gupta was at the counter the whole time and he did not talk to Bhaker directly at any time. It can also be seen from CCTV footage. Therefore, a case of misconduct by him does not arise.

According to this, CCTV footage also falsifies allegations of taking bribe and snatching mobile phones. According to Air India, during the entry at the Delhi airport counter, Bhakar told the officers that he had an air pistol and 0.22 bore gun.

According to the statement, he was advised by our counter officers to bring documents which are mandatory for carrying weapons. Air India security officials also corrected this.
