The Central Industrial Security Force, which is responsible for managing the security at Indian airports, has denied reports that one of its personnel was punished for stopping actor Salman Khan at the Mumbai airport recently. Instead, the CISF said, the officer in question was ‘suitably rewarded’ by the paramilitary organisation.
It wrote on Twitter, “The contents of this tweet are incorrect & without factual basis. In fact, the officer concerned has been suitably rewarded for exemplary professionalism in the discharge of his duty. @PIBHomeAffairs.”
