According to a press release issued by the police, the duo are employees of Super Bakery in Viman Nagar. The Air Force Station officials had placed an order of 600 “patties” at the Super Bakery for a function organised at its officers’ mess around 5 pm on Monday. As per the instructions of the bakery owner Sadakat Ansari, his employees Zuber and Saiuddin went to the Air Force Station in a van for delivering the order.
Police said that Zuber shot videos of an area in the Air Force Station where filming and photography is prohibited. An Air Force patrolling asked the van driver to stop, but they allegedly tried to flee. The patrolling team chased and nabbed them near the civilian airport.
After the video of prohibited area in Zuber’s cellphone was found and the duo were unable to give satisfactory reply to the questions asked by security officials, they were handed over to the police. Assistant security officer B D Patnaik lodged an FIR. Assistant police inspector P B Kolte is investigating the case.
Police sources said suspects claimed to have taken video of prohibited area because they found the place “very clean and beautiful.”
