Australian TV crew bring detonation kit into venue

The Channel 7 journalist, who also filmed black market explosives on sale near New Delhi, walked into the venue carrying the case, capable of triggering up to 200 explosions if fitted with a detonator, without attracting suspicion.

Footage broadcast on Monday showed reporter Mike Duffy easily walking into the cordoned off area with the over-sized, wheeled suitcase when a gate was opened to allow a police convoy through.

“Patrol cars drive in, I slip through,” he says in a voice over. “While they’re distracted by their own cars, I breeze in with an over sized suitcase.

   “There are dozens of police. But nobody asks me what it’s for. And this is no ordinary piece of luggage. It’s a portable, purpose-built casing for a remote detonation kit. The unit is capable of setting off 200 explosions.” Duffy had earlier secretly filmed the purchase of the case from the boot of a car in a restaurant car park north of New Delhi.
