Sanskrity Sinha reports:

Two Transportation Safety Administration (TSA) officials involved in the recent frisking incident of former Indian president Dr. A.P.J Abdul Kalam at a U.S. airport have reportedly been sacked, according to an Indian national daily.

Though there are no confirmed reports of the lay-off either by TSA or U.S. Government, the Hindustan Times reported Thursday that the U.S. authorities had fired the executives for “exceeding their brief” as they made former Kalam, who is also an eminent scientist, face security checks a second time after he had boarded his aircraft.
