New Delhi, January 8:

A steamy adult movie screened on television sets at the international airport here has baffled authorities, who had installed them for entertainment of passengers.

“I have conducted preliminary inquiry of staff in the electronics department. They said the movie was part of an AIDS awareness programme,” Indira Gandhi International Airport officiating director Mandeep Lal said today.

He said a detailed inquiry of the incident, which occurred shortly after Thursday midnight, could be held only after the weekend.

The adult film appeared on all television sets installed in the airport, prompting passengers to complain to the authorities. But it was taken off the air only after 20 minutes. Lal ruled out the possibility that the staff in the electronic department were clandestinely viewing the adult film in the cable operator’s room without realising it was being screened on all TV sets. “We don’t allow any such things to come even near our office.”
