Tharoor was waiting at the airport for her sister who was coming from Delhi and was in conversation with someone, as per Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) sources.
During the conversation that was taking place, a passenger reportedly misheard Tharoor saying that he was waiting for a 'pistol'.
Panic-stricken, the passenger informed airport security.
However, the matter was quickly resolved after Tharoor gave a clarification that he was waiting for his sister to arrive. (ANI)
