Mumbai: A 27-year-old man whose mobile phone contained images of Pakistani terrorist Mohammed Kasab, underworld don Dawood Ibrahim and Taj Mahal Hotel in flames was detained today at the international airport here before he was to take a flight to Saudi Arabia, police said.  

The man, a native of Bihar, had misplaced his mobile phone at the airport here yesterday.  

He was to board Air India flight to Jeddah in Saudi Arabia and was searching for his mobile but by that time, the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) had found it, police added.  

"CISF found the objectionable photographs in the phone. As the man claimed that it was his mobile, the securitymen asked him why he was carrying these images in his mobile and where he clicked them," a senior police official said.  

"Subsequently, he was handed over to the city police. His phone was carrying photographs of terrorists Masood Azhar, Kasab, Dawood and the Taj Mahal Hotel in flames during Mumbai terror attacks and others," the official said.

The man, who is a driver by profession, was not much educated and he claimed that he had kept the images in his mobile phone just for curiosity, DCP Satyanarayan Choudhary said.

"We have recorded his statement. But so far it appears that the man was not aware of the consequences of carrying such images in the mobile," said another official.
