Delhi High Court quashes case against man caught with live ammunition at IGI Airport; asks him to deposit ₹50k towards 'social good'

The Court said that since the case had been pending for the last seven years and the police machinery was put in motion, it was appropriate for the petitioner to contribute towards the “betterment of the society."

Stating that “conscious possession” is the most significant factor for prosecution under the Arms Act, the Delhi High Court quashed criminal proceedings against a man who was caught with a live cartridge at the Indira Gandhi International Airport in 2016 [Mohd Nazim v. State].
