Live: Jeevís coach asked to remove turban again
18:24: Jeevís coach asked to remove turban again
Top Indian golfer Jeev Milkha Singh's coach Amritinder Singh was on Tuesday forced to remove his turban by security officials for the second time at the same Milan airport where he had to endure a painful ordeal last week. Amritinder, who was travelling with Jeev for the Sicillian Open, was rudely told on March 15 by Milan airport security officials that he could either remove the turban or not board the flight which led to protest from the Indian government. Despite the expression of "regret" from Italy on that episode, the security officials of the same airport again asked Amritinder to remove his turban or miss the flight, which left Jeev and his coach stunned. Amritinder showed a letter of apology from the Italian Golf Federation on what happened last week but to no avail.
