Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah was subjected to a "secondary immigration check" upon his arrival in the US due to which he had to spend two hours at the airport.

This is what he tweeted first:

Recently, Bollywood actor Shahrukh Khan was "detained" in August at the Los Angeles airport. It was the third time in seven years that he had been stopped by US immigration officials at the country's airports. 

Khan too had tweeted that while he fully understood and respected security protocols, "to be detained at US immigration every damn time really really sucks".

Abdullah said he is in the US to speak at an event at New York University "but almost wish stayed at home instead". 

He is scheduled to speak at the event organized by the students of New York University on October 21 which is expected to be attended by former Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Subramanian Swamy.
