New delhi sources stated that a US national with disability has said a security personnel at the delhi airport asked her to stand up from her wheelchair for security check despite her declaring that she can't stand due to a spinal injury she suffered in 2006. The woman said in an email to the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) chief "She went to call her senior and started saying that I was acting and doing drama”.

Furthermore Virali modi, 28, a US based disability rights activist, was travelling from delhi to mumbai when the alleged incident took place. She said "Because of her disability she carries a personal wheelchair which she had surrendered to the check-in counter as cargo and she was appointed a porter to help her to the seat on the flight. Upon reaching the security checking, she had the worst experience with one of your female CISF (officer)".



Moreover Ms modi said she asked the officer to do a "manual pat down" as she couldn't stand. Further Ms modi later said that the "head of the CISF" expressed his regret over the incident. She added “She received a call from the head of the CISF in delhi who expressed his regret about this situation and extended an invitation to meet him whenever she is in delhi”.
