Officials Wednesday, May 5, 2021, said  200 grams of methaqualone, a sedative, was recovered from the suspect, Mr. Nonso Ekwealor Base, as he was undergoing security checks at terminal two of the Indira Gandhi International (IGI) Airport Tuesday just before he was scheduled to board an Indigo airlines flight to Bengaluru, reports Indian Times.
