The government created a special security group called CISF to provide security to airports, metros and important government buildings. Virali Modi is an Indian origin, US citizen and disability rights activist. In 2006 she suffered spinal cord injury and since then she cannot walk or stand. She used a wheelchair to move around. She was travelling from Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport by a Spicejet flight on 9th September, Monday. When she entered the airport’s check-in counter, she surrendered her wheelchair in exchange for an airport wheelchair. She was even assigned a porter to accompany her. A woman CISF constable who was at the security counter frisking people, insisted that Virali must stand up. The porter said that it was impossible for her to stand. The constable still insisted she stand up. Virali said she can not stand. She even showed her passport to prove that even though she is in a wheelchair she travels all over the world. She can not stand. Even after all this the CISF constable ignored virali. She started telling her colleagues that Virali was doing drama and could easily stand if she wanted to. When Virali heard this she immediately confronted the constable but the constable just started shouting at Virali. Finally a senior staff member came and solved the problem and allowed Virali to board the flight. Virali has written a complaint to the CISF In her strongly worded letter she said, “Is this how the CISF is trained to handle people with disabilities?” This is a shame on our government. They did not treat her with respect and sensitivity. This behaviour is very wrong. Virali told officials to look into this matter and make sure this doesn’t happen to anyone else. A few years ago, Virali had faced a similar incident at the Mumbai airport where the CISF staff insisted she stand up. When she said she couldn’t, one of the women troopers pulled her leg so hard, that she had to be hospitalised.
