If you think your checked-in luggage is safe in flights, just wait for a moment because you might be wrong here.

On 13 October, Manipur CM N. Biren Singh tweeted a video showing flight crew members opening fliers’ baggage. The video is from Thailand. The video puts a serious question mark over baggage security and has raised a pertinent issue whether passengers’ check-in luggage is safe inside the aircraft.

The incident took place at Phuket International Airport in Thailand. According to the sources, the airport staffer has been identified as 27-year-old Abdullah Hayee Mayeh.

That employee is not a part of the Jetstar airline. He instead works for a third-party company called BAGS, brought in to look after passengers’ luggage.

The CM shared two videos in which Abdullah can be seen opening the luggage of the passengers and checking their belongings. He was also speaking with another crew member.

According to the Phuket Gazette, After the arrest of luggage handler, a Bluetooth speaker was recovered by the authorities.

The airline in a statement said: “Jetstar is aware of a video circulating online and we are taking the matter seriously. Jetstar launched an investigation into the thefts after video was shared.
