MS Dhoni involved in bizarre luggage swap incident at Kolkata airport

Written by Rohit Pawar

Former Team India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni didn’t have the best of the starts after he touched down Kolkata on Monday. Arriving in the City of Joy earlier in the evening, Dhoni witnessed one of the strangest of incidents that could ever happen to a famous personality at the airport. In what can be treated as the first case of its kind, Dhoni’s luggage was reportedly swapped with another passenger following his arrival at the Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose International Airport in Kolkata.

As per sources, Dhoni’s goods and chattels have been mistakenly swapped with another passenger as the former Indian skipper was reportedly carrying someone else’s luggage after de-boarding his flight from New Delhi. Dhoni arrived in West Bengal on Monday from an established airline and was informed about the luggage swap later at the Kolkata airport.

The concerned authorities are treating the misfortunate incident of baggage exchange involving Dhoni as a rare case of mismanagement which could have occurred due to operator malfunction. In a bid to rectify the bizarre mishap, airport authorities have informed the passenger who (by mistake) took Dhoni’s luggage from the airport. The passenger expected to be in possession of Dhoni’s belongings was reportedly contacted and has been updated about the whole incident.

The authorities will collect the misplaced baggage from the passenger and the legendary cricketer is expected to receive the luggage he was carrying today. The airline has denied that there was a lapse in error or any mistake from their end. According to the airline sources, Dhoni departed the Kolkata airport with someone else’s luggage as he accidentally ended up swapping his baggage.
