Omar Abdullah Detained At US Airport


New York: Former J&K chief minister Omar Abdullah said he was stopped at a New York airport for two hours on Monday for extra immigration checks. “Another `random’ secondary immigration check upon landing in the US. Thrice in three visits, the randomness is growing tiresome now,” Abdullah, 46, tweeted shortly after midnight.

“I just spent TWO hours in a holding area and this happens EVERY time…” the National Conference leader said.”I’m here to speak at an event organised by NYU but I almost wish I’d stayed at home instead.That’s two hours well and truly wasted!!” Abdullah said.
