Reacting to the charges, CISF said its authorities were just after security techniques. In his post, Mehta said that CISF authorities constrained him to fix and re-try his prothesis before he was to load up a 5.30 am flight from Bengaluru to Hyderabad. “I have been enduring a harm since the previous 20 days with my stump (worked appendage) and the security check authorities just said, ‘It is your issue’, in such manner. It took me 40 minutes to evacuate and wear my prosthetic appendage which left me seeping toward the end,” Mehta composed.

“Huge numbers of the authorities at different air terminals were sufficiently sensible to comprehend when I educated them concerning my harm and they let me go. However, at the Kempegowda Airport, similar officer Mr. Thakur Das, who was exceptionally impolite the past time, gave me a similarly mortifying treatment this time as well,” he included.

Mehta was alluding to another episode when he was purportedly embarrassed over his prosthetic leg. The para-cyclist, who lost his leg taking after a mishap, said airplane terminal powers must set up body scanners to avert mortification of in an unexpected way abled individuals, and called for sensitisation of CISF staff.

“This isn’t only my own fight… I am here to remain for my kin and roll out an improvement. A shoutout to the concerned powers — fall in line and change the framework. Else, be prepared to hold up under the warmth,” he said. The CISF said that arrangements on security at air terminals were settled on by leaders.

“We are simply executing requests to check air travelers. The matter raised by Mehta was identified with change of arrangement, and in the event that they truly need to change the methodology they need to approach the concerned division and organizations,” DC-PRO for CISF Manjit Singh said.
