Amit Sadh detained at LA airport

Amit Sadh is the latest victim of security scrutiny. The actor took off for LA on 9th August,14. As tradition state in India, Amit was carrying quite a few things for family and friends living abroad. One of these gifts was a Kirpan (Knife) that Amit was carrying for his childhood friend. Amit got this Kirpan especially for his friend a few months back, when he was visiting Amritsar as he had specifically asked for it. The Holy Knife was blessed at the revered Golden Temple.

Little did Amit know that his faith shall be tested once he landed. During the baggage check, the Kirpan was found. After some initial questing, the actor was asked to wait while they ‘processed’ his documents. What was supposed to be a routine flight, turned out to be a 6 hour wait at the airport. Amit could have given away the Kirpan but held onto it and hence his wait at the airport security was so long.

“After the security check, Amit was asked to wait. Later the security officer came and asked him for his passport and his bag. They inspected the bag and removed Kirpan, and they weren’t ready to give it back. After a long wait of 6 hrs, and lot of argument finally they let Amit go with the Kirpan” says the official spokesperson

After a very long travel and an equally long wait at the airport the actor was finally let off.
