Immigration Officer Suspended For Asking Outrageous Questions
A bit of power in the wrong
hands can lead to disturbing results.
An Indian airport immigration

By the time the woman returned
from her trip to HKG, her father-in-law had laid an official complaint with
Delhi Police, who, thankfully, took her seriously and arrested the officer. He
is suspended while the investigation runs its course.
