Bogus tickets on sale in Bangalore

Bangalore: Are you looking forward to see the high action-packed air show at the Yelahanka Air Force Station? Well, don’t raise your hopes too high. Not only are the chances of you not getting tickets for the show high; you might also end up buying fake ones.
DNA on Thursday found out that miscreants in the city are selling Aero India 2011 tickets in the guise of ‘DRDO officials’. Authorities of Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), one of the main event managers of Aero India 2011, have confirmed that ticket sales have been withdrawn from all outlets but the CII counter near Gate 1 of the Air Force Station. Tickets are sold through the official website of Aero India 2011 as well.
Despite this, there are miscreants out to make a quick buck. DNA on Thursday conducted a reality check and discovered that a popular mall in the city’s central business district—which was initially keeping air show tickets for sale—is now directing the Aero India 2011 ticket-seekers to a person named Kiran with a mobile no (9844785965).
Interestingly, Aero India organisers had earlier made it clear that tickets should not be bought from anywhere else other than the authorised counters at designated malls, State Bank of India branches or at the venue itself after the air show has commenced.
