NEWDELHI: High drama en­sued at the im­mi­gra­tion area of the Indira Gandhi In­ter­na­tional Air­port when two In­di­ans, broth­ers, al­legedly drunk, cre­ated a ruckus and jos­tled with an im­mi­gra­tion of­fi­cer in the early hours of Satur­day. Armed Cen­tral In­dus­trial Se­cu­rity Force (CISF) per­son­nel, who had to be sum­moned to the spot, handed over the two men to the Delhi Po­lice, af­ter which they were ar­rested.

Ac­cord­ing to the deputy com­mis­sioner of po­lice (IGIA), San­jay Bha­tia, a com­plaint was re­ceived from im­mi­gra­tion of­fi­cers around 12.30am that two men, i den­ti­fied as Ra­jesh Ku­mar and Parvin­der Nath, from Pun­jab, who had ar­rived at the Delhi air­port from Dubai, were de­mand­ing pri­or­ity im­mi­gra­tion clear­ance.

“Im­mi­gra­tion staff al­leged that Ku­mar and Nath ap­proached the im­mi­gra­tion counter ine­bri­ated. They, al­legedly, did not fol­low the queue and started ar­gu­ing with im­mi­gra­tion of­fi­cers when asked to main­tain deco­rum.

“Of­fi­cers said the two men even abused the of­fi­cers and tried to drag and man­han­dle them. Ku­mar even al­legedly forced him­self out of the im­mi­gra­tion counter. They also cre­ated a ruckus at the diplo­matic counter,” Bha­tia said.

An­other im­mi­gra­tion of­fi­cer said their staff then called the armed CISF per­son­nel for as­sis­tance. “The two men were then pinned down by CISF per­son­nel. The Delhi Po­lice was called and both were handed over for le­gal ac­tion. The in­ci­dent led to a dis­rup­tion and de­lay in im­mi­gra­tion ser­vices as many pas­sen­gers, both for­eign and do­mes­tic, had to wait till the two un­ruly pas­sen­gers were paci­fied,” the of­fi­cer said, re­quest­ing anonymity.

Ku­mar and Nath were ar­rested and booked un­der the In­dian Pe­nal Code’s sec­tions 353 and 186, for as­sault, and for obstructing pub­lic ser­vant in dis­charge of pub­lic func­tions, re­spec­tively,” Bha­tia said, adding that they were later re­leased on bail.
