The NDA government has reportedly taken away the no-frisking privilege accorded to Congress president Sonia Gandhi's son-in-law Robert Vadra at airports across the country.

Vadra was on a list of 33 categories of people who are exempted from security checks at civil airports across the country.

Vadra took to his Facebook page to respond to the government's move. "I appreciate that my name will not appear in the VVIP list anymore. I hope this is a dead issue now and will not be used against me. My Best wishes," he posted on Facebook.

Vadra had in the past asked the government to revoke his privileges through his Facebook post on 14 September.

"Plans to visit every terminal in the Airports in India and add a white tape on my name from the VVIP list and my signature on top !! So look out," Vadra had then posted on Facebook.

The no-frisk list includes constitutional figures like the President, Vice President, Prime Minister, Union Cabinet ministers, Leader of Opposition, Supreme Court judges, high court chief justices, chief ministers and their deputies, governors and ambassadors, apart from those who are included in the Special Protection Group, such as Vadra's wife Priyanka Gandhi and brother-in-law Rahul Gandhi.
