Differently abled DU Professor harassed at Hyderabad airport

Dr. Suman K Kasturi also covers the story of my harassment at Hyderabad. He writes in The Hans India:

"Singh, sardonically, was returning from a conference on "Evidence in Global Disability & Health" in Hyderabad. It was with the intervention of a higher official of Airport, Professor Singh was exempted. It was a pathetic condition experienced by a person who is in a noble profession.

The officials said that they were following the guidelines issued to them. There is no doubt that there should not be any compromise on security related issues. Nevertheless, some sort of exceptions like in Professor Singh’s case may be considered at least for future compliance."

The story was earlier covered prominently in Times of India and Hindu.
