The passenger had placed his personal valuables in a tray as part of the mandatory screening process at the international security hold area (SHA).
However, the passenger forgot to retrieve a particular white metal ring encrusted with a stone from the tray. The aviation security group(ASG) personnel of CISF on duty at the SHA placed the same in the ‘Security removed items’ (SRI), where it remained till such time that the airport received a mail from the passenger about this ring that he had failed to collect from the tray prior to departure.
