To teach a lesson to the ‘bullying’ ministers, the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) has asked the Home Ministry to publicly ‘name and shame’ the guilty MPs by putting their names on the ministry website. The dossier submitted to the ministry by CISF lists 20 MPs who have been accused of bullying its jawans at the airports when asked to undergo mandated security check, said a report.
“The dossier names 20 MPs who berated and browbeat our jawans last year when asked to get their luggage X-rayed and take their coats off before check-in,” a senior CISF officer was quoted as saying. “While examining the CCTV footage from near the check-in area, we found that it was the complainants (MPs) who had misbehaved with the jawans,” he added. Although, this listing is a routine affair by the the security force in-charge of the airport, this is the first time when the force has sought action against the MPs.
The dossier comes at a time when major domestic airlines have barred a Shiv Sena MP from their flights for thrashing a 60-year-old Air India official with a sandal aboard a plane recently.
