Actor Riteish Deshmukh following a power outage stuck incident at the lounge of the Rajiv Gandhi International Airport at Hyderabad questioned of reckless emergency measures on his twitter handle.
The actor wrote, “So we were at the Hyderabad Airport Lounge – suddenly the power goes off – the way in and out is an elevator that shuts down. The only exit door is locked in a chain (Incase of FIRE it’s a tragedy waiting to happen).”
The actor also posted two videos related to this incident along with his tweet.
However, the airport authorities quickly responded to Deshmukh’s complaint and responded, “We regret the inconvenience caused. It was a minor technical snag which was resolved immediately. Please be rest assured that our Airport Terminals are safety compliant. In an event of an emergency, the glass doors can be broken. Passenger safety is of utmost importance to us.”
Meanwhile, the actor’s narrated incident received similar responses of harassment faced by the general masses in various airports in the country as well.
