Whether this information is correct or not, is a different matter.
But all international passengers needs to be very careful and keep a keen eye on their luggage.
HAND BACK SHOULD NEVER BE ON RESTING ON BACK AND SHOULD BE FIRMLY ZIPPED AND LOCKED..
IT SHOULD BE CARRIED RESTING ON WAIST FRONT AND IN VIEW, OTHERWISE PEOPLE CAN DROP IN ANY THING IN IT IF IT IS RESTING ON BACK AND OPENED.
EVEN I READ THE PASSPORT SOME PAGES WILL BE TORN WITHOUT KNOWLEDGE AND PUT IN TROUBLE.
TRAVELLING IS GOOD BUT WITH UTMOST CARE IT HAS TO GO.
Excellent and useful article of great value and importance .

Unbelievable but apply caution.....All those who travel a lot ,
VERY IMPORTANT Caution at Duty free shops- worldwide
An Indian was detained for stealing a box of cigarettes in a duty-free shop at International Airport, Bangkok! He had paid for chocolates and a carton of cigarettes. The cashier put a packet of extra cigarettes into his bag and passanger thought it was a free pack. He was arrested for shop-lifting and the Thai Police extortion price was 30,000 Baht (Thai Currency) for his release. He spent two nights in jail and paid 500 Baht for an air-conditioned cell, 200-300 baht for each visitor, and 1 1,000 baht for his final release. The Police shared the money in front of his eyes. On top of that, he was charged in court and fined 2,000 baht by the magistrate and handcuffed and escorted to his plane. His passport was stamped "Thief" .. While there, his relatives quested help from the Indian Embassy and was told that they are helpless, many Asians are victimised similarly daily and letters and phone-calls to the Thai authorities are ignored. He shared a cell with a Singaporean the first night who paid 60,000 baht for his release. The second night was a Malaysian national who paid 70,000 baht. Mind you this was not in a shanty shop in downtown Bangkok but in a duty free shop at the Bangkok Int'l Airport .
The above is 100% correct information because Mr.Rajan Khera's customer from India faced exactly the same scenario mentioned above when he was in transit at Bangkok Int'l Airport coming to Taipei . Someone who went through the same ordeal in Dubai He bought stuff at the Duty Free upon entering. The girl at Duty Free put a bottle of cologne in his shopping bag (he did not even see it happen). He was arrested for stealing (this is before he even picked up his luggage ). He sat at the airport jail (where he was harassed for the whole day. ( NO FOOD, NO WATER ) for one day and only after he paid a fine (bribe of US 500.). That is all the cash he had in his pocket at the time. They let him go. These are scams that are happening all over the place. Please BE CAREFUL! All of this is pre-planned and the people who work at the airport know who to target.
CHECK YOUR SHOPPING BAGS BEFORE YOU LEAVE ANY SHOP/MALL AND PASS THIS ON TO YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY.
