<!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin--><b>Nusli Wadia detained at Dubai airport with gun </b>
Friday, 19 January , 2007, 15:04 
New Delhi: GoAir and Bombay Dyeing Chairman Nusli Wadia was detained at the Dubai airport on January 13 for carrying an undeclared pistol which had escaped security screening at Mumbai airport.

Wadia carried a pistol and 30 cartridges aboard Air India flight 717, flying from Mumbai to Dubai, without declaring it to the airline or Customs officials.

The pistol was in his baggage, which went through the regular security checks at Mumbai airport, but was noticed only at Dubai.<b> Wadia was detained and questioned for three hours in Dubai and was released after he showed his arms licence and Air India's regional director intervened. </b>

Wadia was supposed to travel by another airline on January 13, but could not take that flight and at the last minute booked on an Air India flight scheduled to take off at 3 pm.

He didn’t have time to go home and pack his bags, so he asked his domestic help to send his luggage to the airport directly. There were two similar looking bags in a cupboard: one had Wadia’s toiletries and the other the pistol.

The help reportedly made a mistake and sent the bag carrying the pistol with the rest of the luggage. Wadia did not check his baggage and took it to Dubai.

<b>Wadia has the status of a Commercially Important Person, which gives him certain privileges at the airport but not exemption from frisking.</b>

Two baggage clearance employees have been suspended at the Mumbai airport, which is under the security cover of the Central Industrial Security Force.

Air India refused to comment but Bombay Dyeing officials privately admitted the incident, which they said was a mistake.

<b>The Prime Minister, President and the Chief Justice of India are the only people in the country who are not frisked at the airport.</b>

Why Air India's regional director intervened? When people are breaking law they should be booked, why laws are enforced based on money or power? <!--emo&:thumbdown--><img src='style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif' /><!--endemo-->
