However, the 34-year-old found his income as a football player and a government employee insufficient to support this lifestyle.

“He used to come to the IGI airport by flight, stole check-in baggage and took it as hand baggage in another flight,” said Deputy Commissioner of Police (IGI) D.K. Gupta.

Ultimately, it was CCTV cameras that led the police to Singh.
