The star was flying to Pune by Mumbai-Pune Jet Airways flight, and was carrying the pistol in his check-in baggage. When his baggage was screened, airline security staff found the said weapon, the Sl. No. of which did not match with the license papers. As per the laws, the Bureau of Civil Aviation permits carrying licensed arms only on flights. Subsequently, Amitabh decided to send back the gun to his home alongwith his staff person and boarded the flight scheduled to leave at 9.30 a.m. However, the news are that airport police has written to the airline demanding an explanation as to why Big B was let off without informing them.
