Filmmaker Claims Grateful Airport Staff ‘refused’ To Frisk Him; Aviation Min Asks 'Who?'

Writer-Director Navjot Gulati in a now-deleted tweet on Wednesday said that a security officer at an airport refused to frisk him saying "my heart does not allow me to suspect you". According to Gulati, the officer also told him in Hindi that “Sir, you people are already doing so much for all of us and now you are fighting to save the country." 

It seems like Gulati was trying to indicate that the security officer was unwilling to frisk him out of gratitude towards the ongoing farmers protesting against Centre's three farm laws. It is also unclear whether the security officer assumed that the filmmaker was a farmer or anyone associated with the protest.

However, the tweet was brought to the notice of Civil Aviation Minister Hardeep Singh Puri, following which Gulati deleted the tweet and also restricted his public account only to his followers. One popular Twitter user tagged the Union Minister on Gulati’s tweet and wrote, “Who’s this security officer?” To this, the Minister responded that he would also like to know about the security officer who refused to frisk Gulati. The security of the airports across India is handled by the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF)
