Throwing the Indian aviation security system to the wind, a 40-year-old Sri Lankan woman travelled to Bahrain from Chennai after checking in as a passenger bound for Colombo on Thursday. She was however deported from the gulf country and the Indian authorities sent her back to Colombo on Friday.
Air India staff while looking for Asha Anandan, who collected the boarding pass, were shocked to find that she had boarded a flight to Bahrain. They immediately alerted officials in Bahrain who detained Asha Anandan. She was deported back to Chennai and from the city, she was sent to Sri Lanka. It is not clear if she was trying to reach Bahrain without valid documents.
