A passenger who arrived Chennai from Bangkok  has been detained at the airport after customs officers found a month-old leopard cub in his luggage.
The 45-year-old, who has not yet been officially named, was said to have been "evasive in his replies" when questioned about his luggage by customs officers.
Suspicious were raised when officials heard noises coming from his bag, which was found to contain the 2.2lb (1kg) cub hidden in a plastic grocery basket.
"The animal was in a state of shock and was making trill sounds, and appeared to be weak," airport officials said.
