These people are selling this key chains by representing themselves as sales promoters and giving chains in free to public at these places. These chains look very beautiful and so people tend to take it very easily as gift or promotional item.

This might occur at Chandigarh or Mumbai Airport.

It is fake news as no such incidence has been reported by anyone. Such news was initially posted by a blogging site in year 2013 - http://www.theautomotiveindia.com/forums/road-safety-driving-sense/11894-key-rings-bought-fuel-pumps-might-track-your-location.html
