DM’s Wife Files Complaint Against Airline Staff Over Missing Bag Worth Rs 15 Lakh

In a concerning turn of events, Manju Singh, the wife of Moradabad’s District Magistrate (DM) Manvendra Singh, has taken legal action against the staff of a prominent airline after her checked-in bag, containing cash and jewellery valued at Rs 15 lakh, mysteriously disappeared during her journey from Delhi to Hyderabad on January 28.

Ramprasad Sharma, the station house officer at Civil Lines Police Station in Moradabad, confirmed the registration of a First Information Report (FIR) under sections 406 (criminal breach of trust), 420 (cheating), and other related charges against unidentified employees of the airline.

According to the details outlined in the FIR, the incident unfolded around 11 pm at Terminal 3 of the Indira Gandhi International Airport in Delhi. Singh recounted that as she was preparing to board her Hyderabad-bound flight, an individual, purportedly a flight attendant or airport official, instructed her to surrender her bag, assuring her that it would be forwarded through cargo and be available for collection at her destination. Trusting the instructions, Singh complied and received a slip as confirmation before boarding the flight.

Upon reaching Hyderabad, Singh inquired about her bag, only to be directed to belt no. 37. However, her bag failed to materialize, and after prolonged waiting and unfruitful inquiries, she was informed that she would receive updates regarding her luggage within a week. Dissatisfied with the airline’s response even after the stipulated period, Singh decided to escalate the matter by filing a formal complaint.

Manvendra Singh expressed dismay, highlighting that airport officials had indeed collected the bag during boarding, yet it was never returned, prompting them to initiate legal proceedings.
