Indian detained at Paris airport

New Delhi: A US-bound Paris-Chicago flight of Air France was just about to take off from Charles De Gaulle airport, Paris, on August 22 morning when Mr S K Sharma, a Delhi-based upcoming industrialist, was stopped at the last point before boarding. Mr Sharma was along with his son, Shivang.
Two American security personnel asked Sharma to accompany them.
Mr Sharma’s son had already boarded the flight. Mr Sharma was driven in a car for about two kilometres to a place where airport authorities kept “suspicious baggage”.
The French securitymen opened the cage and brought out the suitcase. The French securitymen opened the offending suitcase and took out a vial containing some liquid.
The securitymen demanded to know what it was. Mr Sharma told them it was a washing gel. He even offered to give a demonstration.
Then the securitymen inquired about another article in the suitcase, a laptop, and asked him to operate it.
Mr Sharma was driven back in the same car to the bay the aircraft was parked.
