An IPS officer was recently asked to open his bag at the Jaipur airport security as it was a ‘mutter’ of grave concern. Thankfully, the matter ended ‘peasfully’, and the IPS officer continued with his day with complete ‘peas’ of mind.

If you’re scratching your head, wondering whether the above written words are spelled correctly, we assure you that they are. The airport security personnel were baffled to see that the IPS officer was carrying nothing but several dozens of peas in the bag. The incident came into the light when the said IPS officer himself took to Twitter and shared the anecdote with the netizens.

Arun Bothra, the Transport Commissioner of Odisha was asked at the airport to open his baggage for security inspection as the scanners detected something strange in his bag. Little did the airport officials know that the “strange” thing in his bag was nothing but one of the most loved vegetables in the nation.

The Facts of the Matter

Put yourself in the shoes of an airport security personnel for a minute. It’s a normal-ish day with hundreds of passengers making their way to you to get their baggage checked so that they can board their next flight.

However, suddenly the electric scanners pick up something unusual inside one of the hand luggage brought by a customer. You’ve prepared yourself for such an instance several times and the protocol as is as clear as daylight to you. And yet, there’s a small residual thought of “what if it’s something dangerous that the passenger is carrying?” in your mind.

You ask the passenger to open the baggage and to your surprise, the baggage is carrying nothing but bucket loads of peas.
