CISF apologises to Sudhaa Chandran after she was stopped at the airport for her prosthetic limb

The Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) has issued an apology to actress-dancer Sudhaa Chandra who recently tagged Prime minister Narendra Modi and expressed her disregard towards the ETD procedures that are conducted at the airports for people with an artificial attachment to their body.

In response to Sudhaa’s complaint, CISF tweeted to ETimes, “We are extremely sorry for the inconvenience caused to Ms. Sudhaa Chandran. As per protocol, prosthetics are to be removed for security checks only under exceptional circumstances.”


“We will examine why the lady personnel concerned requested Ms. Sudhaa Chandran to remove the prosthetics. We assure Ms.Sudhaa Chandran that all our personnel will be sensitised again on the protocols so that no inconvenience is caused to travelling passengers” they further asserted.


On Thursday, the actress shared a video of herself and talked about the hurtful behaviour of the airport officials. She revealed that each time she travels, even for her professional commitments, she is asked by the officials to remove her artificial limb and show it to them for the ETD process.

While she said that this is not humanly possible and is very hurtful as well, Sudhaa also expressed her grief over how women of this country shall not be this disrespectful to each other. She further pleaded to PM Narendra Modi about altering the process and making it easier, much like senior citizens who have a card to show.


The actress wrote in the caption of the video, ‘Totally hurt ....each time going thru this grill is very very hurting....hope my message reaches the state Nd central govt authorities....and expecting a prompt action .....’.






In 1981, Sudhaa Chandran’s right leg was amputated after the formation of gangrene when she met with a road accident near Tiruchirapalli, Tamil Nadu while she was on her way back from Madras. She was only 16 years old. Despite all odds, the actress remained strong and had a successful career in the entertainment industry with her acting and dancing skills.
