The departure of the Indian Air Colombo-Chennai flight had to be delayed for several hours after a Sky Marshall of an Indian flight was taken into custody by the BIA security personnel when he arrived at the transit lounge with a loaded firearm.

A “sky marshal” is an armed guard who travels incognito on certain commercial flights and who is trained to take action in the event of a hijack or other violent criminal action.

It is strictly prohibited for the security officer to carry his firearm out of the plane, and if the security officer wants to go out of the plane, he must hand over the firearm to the chief pilot of the plane.

The Sky Marshal of this particular Indian aircraft, an officer of the Special Task Force of India, has arrived at the BIA passenger terminal with the chief pilot of this aircraft while still carrying his firearm.
