27 year old model Kanchan Thakur was queuing at airport security in Mumbai with friends when she told an employee to check her friend’s bag — because it contained a bomb.
The group was detained, their checked bags offloaded from the aircraft, and their flight to Delhi was delayed an hour.
She’s been charged and released on bail, but really doesn’t understand what the big deal is — clearly security has its priorities wrong — saying, “when real terrorists walk into an aircraft they do nothing but when she just cracked a joke, they turned it into such a big thing.”
Don’t name your wifi hotspot Samsung Galaxy Note 7, don’t tweet you can take down a plane when you’re on a plane, and don’t say the word ‘bomb’ to your seat opponent. All end badly. And definitely don’t actually tell security screeners that someone in your party has one when they don’t.
