Kalam Yet to Receive Apology on Frisking

Though Union Aviation Ministry took up the issue assertively, though the Continental Airlines was booked for frisking former President APJ Abdul Kalam at Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport, he is yet to receive apology from the American flying organization.

“I have not yet received it,” said Kalam when asked about the apology sent by the airline.

It may be mentioned that Continental Airlines had apologised to Kalam following a political uproar in the country over the security screening of the former president at Delhi’s international airport before he was to board a flight on April 21.

In response to the query if he felt humiliated when he was asked for security check, Kalam, who is in Kochi, refused to comment, saying that the Parliament has discussed the issue.

However, the airline said that it had sent the apology letter to Kalam’s Delhi office as directed by his official staff and since the former president was travelling, his staff may not have been able to communicate to him about the letter.

“We are waiting for him to return to Delhi so that we can apologise to the former president in person,” a spokesperson of the airline said.
