Jet Airways seems to have landed in a spot of bother with a passenger tweeting pictures of ground staff opening his bag at the Mumbai airport.
In a series of tweets that has since created a buzz on Twitter, musician Raj Pandit posted pictures of what seems like ground staff peering into what the passenger claimed was his bag.
“Rushad, our band member, saw it through the aircraft window & managed to take a few pics,” Pandit said in a later tweet.
In the many hours since he posted the tweets, Pandit has got support from scores of tweeples, some of whom claimed they have had similar experiences on Jet flights. However, Jet Airways has not yet responded to the discussions on Twitter.
The musician later clarified that the “incident took place after landing in Mumbai while off-loading & NOT while loading in Goa, as mentioned earlier”. He added that nothing was stolen from his bag, though he was of the opinion that this was “a major security breach”. In response to a tweet from Indian Express he replied:

Theft from baggage at airports is not unheard of in India, or other busy airports across the world.
Last July, the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF), which is in charge of security at all airports in India, had claimed that incidents of theft at Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport’s cargo terminal have reduced drastically following the installation of over 650 CCTV cameras.
