NRI man booked for IGI trespass seeks HC relief

New Delhi: An NRI philanthropist facing charges of criminal trespass and cheating for allegedly entering a wrong airport terminal in Delhi has sought relief from the high court.
Arvinder Singh Paul was arrested and later released on bail from the IGI airport police station after CISF complained that he entered T3 on the basis of a cancelled London ticket, even though he maintained that he showed an e-ticket of a domestic airline at the gate.
Through his lawyer Sufiyan Siddiqui, Paul questioned the logic of police registering a criminal case and argued that he dropped his disabled daughter and wife headed for London on the strength of a ticket of Indigo airlines Amritsar-bound flight for the same day, without knowing that this flight was to depart from some other terminal.
Justice Pratibha Rani directed the police to fast track the investigation and file the final report within two days. She also directed the trial court to expedite hearing into the case, as Singh cited the medical condition of his daughter that requires constant care and supervision by an adult.
