Two Kashmiri girls, who were detained at the Indira Gandhi International (IGI) airport Friday for questioning and later released, reached Srinagar Saturday morning.
The girls were detained after security personnel spotted a bag with them with the words ‘There could be bomb inside’ inscribed on it, said sources.
