The activist harassed this time is none other than a specialist MD doctor at GTB hospital - the largest government hospital in East Delhi. He made all attempts to explain to the rigid security agencies the difference between artificial limb, prosthesis and orthosis but they did not budge unless they were threatened that in case the flight was missed, the concerned airlines and the security staff would be responsible to organise the travel expenses. And the trick worked as soon the passenger was scanned and certified "Harmless". But not before leaving a bad taste and uncertainty of detainment in the name of security.
