While travelling to the United States a month ago, former president Dr A P J Abdul Kalam was frisked at the IGI Airport in Delhi by the employees of Continental Airlines.

Reports said, Dr Kalam was made to wait for the security check and was made to take off his shoes for checking. However, while this was being done, officials of CISG objected to Kalam's checking.

Ex-president Kalam is exempted from security checks and frisking.

Treating the matter as most serious, Civil Aviation Ministry today ordered an inquiry into the incident and Praful Patel called the matter 'absolutely unpardonable'.
