In a conversation with the Times of India, he said that ‘someone shot a video of Salman Khan at the airport and spread the rumor that action has been taken against the CISF jawan who stopped him, so we had to clarify on Twitter. It was ASI Somnath Mohanty who was on duty. As per the security protocol at the airport, he had asked for security clearance. Every passenger has to go through this process.
same rules for all
On the question of the officer being rewarded, he said that the ASI on duty was rewarded but it was not to stop Salman Khan but his performance in internal assessment was the best. What ASI Mohanty did was a routine investigation process and nothing extraordinary. Not only in Mumbai but at all airports across the country, CISF personnel follow the procedure for airport check-in of celebrities, which is the same for other passengers as well.
