CISF Apologises To Actor-Dancer Sudhaa Chandran; Know Why
New Delhi: The Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) issued an apology to Sudhaa Chandran after the actor-dancer shared her ordeal at an airport because of her prosthetic limb.
“We are extremely sorry for the inconvenience caused to Ms Sudhaa Chandran. As per protocol, prosthetics are to be removed for security checks only under exceptional circumstances,” CISF stated.
“We will examine why the lady personnel concerned requested Ms Sudhaa Chandran to remove the prosthetics. We assure Ms Sudhaa Chandran that all our personnel will be sensitised again on the protocols so that no inconvenience is caused to travelling passengers,” CISF added.
Sudhaa had posted a video on Instagram where she complained that every time she travels for her professional assignments, she is grilled by the security agencies. Despite her request to airport authorities to conduct an ETD (Explosive Trace Detector) for her artificial limb, they ask her to remove it every time.

Sudhaa, despite losing her leg in an accident, returned to acting and dancing with a prosthetic limb.
She tagged Prime Minister Narendra Modi with her complaint, urging him to issue a card to people with prosthetic limbs, just as senior citizens are issued a card.
