Actually, this matter is related to Air India charging huge amount from the passengers in the name of access baggage and instead of depositing that amount in the airline's account, it itself usurped it. In this case, two employees of AISATS, the ground handling agency of Air India, have been caught red handed. On the complaint of AISATS Security Manager Manoj Kumar, the Airport Police has registered an FIR against two employees named Indrajit Samaddar and Ramakrishna Upadhyay.

What is the whole game happening with the passengers?
According to the complaint given by AISATS, the duty of the first accused named Indrajit Samaddar was at the check-in counter located at Terminal 3 of Delhi Airport. His main responsibility was to collect access baggage fees from Air India passengers. It is alleged that Indrajit's target was those passengers who preferred to pay in cash instead of cards. Indrajit used to collect money from passengers in the name of access baggage, but never deposited it in the airlines' account.

This is how the system was being breached?
According to the complaint given by AISATS, accused Indrajeet was breaking into the system of Air India with the help of Ramkrishna Upadhyay, the second accused in this case. Actually, accused Ramkrishna Upadhyay was posted as Assistant Manager, hence he had all the access to the system. In this game, as soon as the passenger paying for the access baggage in cash would leave the airline counter, at the behest of Indrajeet, Ramakrishna would delete the details of the access baggage from the airlines system.

How did the whole matter get exposed?
With the help of two cases reported at Delhi Airport, this entire game has been exposed. The first case is of flight number AI-995 going from Delhi to Dubai. Indrajit had collected around ₹ 27,400 as access baggage fee from the passengers going to Dubai on this flight. In the second case, about Rs 27,100 were collected from the passengers of flight AI-531 going from Delhi to Ahmedabad under the same item. Both the accused had once again tried to grab the money collected from the passengers.
