NEW DELHI: Two Kashmiri girls, returning from Bangladesh where they are pursuing MBBS, were detained Friday afternoon at Indira Gandhi International airport in New Delhi.
The worried parents told KNS news agency that four girls were returning home from Bangladesh when police detained them at the airport.
Four girls were returning from Bangladesh. They travelled safely from Dhaka to Kolkata and then to Delhi in different flights. Their language was checked and cleared at all the airports, the parents told KNS.
But when they reached Delhi Airport today morning to board their flight at 12.45 pm, police at the Indira Gandhi airport detained all four. Thereafter, they released two and detained two among them, the parents said.
The parents alleged that the girls were detained as one of their bags had a label Bomb written on it.
The airport authorities did not inform us about them till yet. We fear for their safety, the parents said.
A top police official told KNS that the issue has taken up with Delhi police for the release of the two girls.
