New Delhi, April 4 (PTI): A New York Police Department officer was arrested in New Delhi on March 11 and charged under the arms act after three bullets were found in his luggage, police said today.
Manny Encarnacion, 49, was arrested on March 11 after he arrived on a Lufthansa Airlines flight, the deputy commissioner of police, airport security, M.I. Haider, said here. “Three 9mm bullets were found in his baggage.”
He was produced in court the same day and granted bail but barred from leaving the country, the police said.
