Manipur Chief Minister N Biren Singh shared three videos showing a baggage handler going through passenger’s luggage inside the aircraft.
He, apparently did not know that he was being filmed. The video is shot in Phuket International Airport, Thailand.
It is not clear though if the handler actually was able to break open the lock of the luggage to steal the contents of the bags.
The baggage handler shown in the video is going through luggage in a Jetstar flight headed to Singapore. The 27-year-old man, employed with a third-party handling company, was arrested and charged after the video leaked.
The video was reportedly part of a sting set up by Airports of Thailand and Tourism Police. The man reportedly stole a bluetooth speaker which was made to return. An investigation has been launched into the incident as well.
“Jetstar is aware of a video circulating online and we are taking the matter very seriously.
We have launched an immediate investigation and will work with Airports of Thailand, our ground handler BAGS and our local security company to ensure the security of our customers’ property on-board our flights,” the company told media outlet.>
