Absurd& strange that #indian passengers boarding Int'l flights from #chennai are not permitted to carry sweets during festive season by @ChennaiCustoms (as per below report)— Sidharth.M.P (@sdhrthmp) October 28, 2023
Unbelievable how passengers cancelled chen-Bangkok &went Chen-Mumbai-Bangk to carry sweets with them! pic.twitter.com/g2zSRzEPyg
Despite the passengers' explanations that they had acquired the sweets in Chennai following a festive occasion, the officials remained steadfast in their decision and subsequently canceled the passengers' tickets.
However, it is worth noting that the same four passengers were able to travel from Chennai to Mumbai on a domestic flight without any hindrance from Mumbai customs, allowing them to proceed to Bangkok with their sweet boxes
