Recently, Rahul was seen stepping out in a rather functional outfit, with minimal details, that’s pertinent to catch a flight. The relaxed nature of the silhouette, made his look stand out. 

While most of the celebrities tend to take a maximalist approach at the airport either with their OTT sneakers or backpacks, we really like how Rahul decided to turn up, wearing a basic, casual outfit.  

Let’s dissect Rahul’s overall airport look and take some style lessons from here.

1. Firstly, let’s talk about his accessories. The fact that he is wearing a neutral-hued baseball cap, is working perfectly with his athleisure outfit. 

Add to that, his white oversized mask here with minimal detailing is simple but classy.

2. As for his beard, we really like his sprouted, salt and pepper beard as it’s doing wonders with his outfit. 

The way he has paired a high-collared black Columbia hoodie, over a basic black T-shirt, shows that Dev knows how to play the fashion cards right. 

The combination looks versatile and even though understated, it still strikes a chord with us.

3. The fact that he has chosen to wear the hoodie with a pair of black joggers, adds to the minimalism factor of the whole ensemble. 

Joggers look on-point and make a statement, adding to the dressy yet casual vibe of the outfit. Rahul here has summed it up pretty well!

4. He is mindful of his sneakers here. The silhouette isn’t very OTT and is working really well with the rest of the outfit. 

The mesh upper of the sneakers with a bit of ankle show is the perfect way to stand out and make a statement, even with such basic yet uber cool outfit.

All in all, the man can make even the most regular outfit, look super fashionable and we appreciate his way of showing us how to not let age compromise your style. 

That’s one heck of a fashion lesson, Dev!

Qatar airport police officers charged over invasive searches of women

DUBAI (Reuters) – Qatar’s public prosecutor has filed criminal charges against an unspecified number of police officers working at Qatar’s Hamad airport after women said they were invasively searched there last month.

Some of the women were Australian and the issue has sparked outrage in Australia. Qatari officials said the searches were conducted in order to locate the mother of a new-born child found abandoned in a garbage bin in an airport bathroom.

Australia’s Prime Minister Scott Morrison has said the searches were appalling and Qatar’s Prime Minister Sheikh Khalid bin Khalifa bin Abdulaziz al-Thani has apologised.

Judicial police officers working in the Airport Security Department broke the law when they summoned female medical staff to conduct the searches, the public prosecutor said in a statement on Monday

The police officers acted unilaterally and face “penalties of a maximum of three years,” it said.

The public prosecutor did not say what crimes had been committed, how many police officers had been charged or detail the penalties they faced, such as imprisonment, if convicted.

The public prosecutor said it had also charged the child’s mother, who has left the country, with attempted murder and that it had launched legal proceedings to arrest her.

The mother, identified as of “Asian nationality”, faces a maximum penalty of 15 years if convicted, the statement said.

It also said a male defendant had been identified as the father of the child after a DNA test, without saying how they were able to initially locate him.

The mother of the abandoned child had messaged the father telling him she had just given birth and that she was abandoning the child and leaving the country, the prosecutor said.

It was not clear what charges the father faced.

The baby girl is being taken care of by Qatari authorities.

The prosecutor said in the statement that the medical staff had been summoned to conduct “external examination of female passengers”, contradicting Australian officials who said the women had been invasively searched.

Australian women say Qatar has not contacted them since invasive Doha airport examinations

Women who were removed from a Qatar Airways flight and subject to an intimate medical examination, sparking international outrage last month, have not received any individual apologies or been directly contacted by the airline.

Passengers on the flight, which departed Doha for Sydney on 2 October, have told Guardian Australia there has been no direct contact with them from either Qatar Airways of the Qatari government in the six weeks since the incident took place.

This is despite some passengers making a formal complaint to Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) and the AFP within 24 hours of arrival.

They also have not been offered any compensation for the traumatic event.

The women say they have all been contacted by the Australian federal police to give interviews this month. The AFP contacted the passengers while they were in quarantine and has said it is committed to pursuing the investigation into their treatment.

The group of passengers, who have asked to remain anonymous, said they would be seeking individual written apologies and were still considering the possibility of legal action.

They are also seeking an undertaking from Qatari authorities that the safety of travellers transiting through Doha airport be put ahead of other concerns in the future.

Passengers have told Guardian Australia that contact from the Morrison government has also been minimal.

One passenger, who asked not to be named, said she was not contacted by DFAT until after the foreign minister, Marise Payne, said at a press conference on 26 October that the women had been offered “appropriate support”.

She missed the call and received a voice message which advised she could call a 1300 number if she required support.

She said she did receive calls from a government agency during her two weeks in hotel quarantine immediately following the flight, but it was not clear whether that call was in response to the complaint made about treatment in Qatar or a general welfare check made to all returning travellers in quarantine.

Women removed from a Qatar Airways flight at Doha airport and forced to undergo an intimate medical check to ascertain if they had recently given birth say neither the airline nor the government of Qatar have contacted them or offered an apology.

But she said she felt the AFP officer that spoke to her was “genuinely committed” to supporting the welfare of her and other passengers.

“They seem to be taking it very seriously,” she said.

Qatari authorities have said that staff at Doha international airport violated standard procedure by requiring 18 women, including 13 Australian citizens, to disembark the plane and follow security staff to a private area of the airport, where they were bundled into ambulances and subject to intimate medical examinations to see if they had recently given birth.

Authorities have since said they were searching for the

Feds seize tens of thousands of dollars in knockoff cellphone accessories at Twin Cities airport

Federal officers seized tens of thousands of dollars in counterfeit cellphone accessories at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport that had been exported from Hong Kong, authorities said Monday.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers uncovered the knockoff Apple and Samsung phone cases and adapters Thursday at a customs facility on airport property.

If these items were authentic, the agency’s announcement read, the manufacturers’ suggested retail price for the shipment would have been $41,500.

“Substandard and illegal products harm the U.S. economy and the health and safety of consumers,” read a statement from Augustine Moore, area port director for Minneapolis. “In particular, the adapters can be exceptionally dangerous.”

Intellectual property rights protection is a priority trade issue for CBP, the agency has said. In fiscal year 2019, CBP and partner agency Homeland Security Investigation seized 27,599 shipments containing intellectual property rights violations.

Heathrow Airport to launch legal review over VAT-free shopping ban

Heathrow Airport is preparing to launch a legal challenge against the government’s decision to ban VAT-free shopping for tourists to the UK from the end of this year.

Last month the Treasury said the move would come into effect in airports for items such as electronics, food and clothing for international visitors by 31 December, when the Brexit transition period ends.

Britain’s busiest airport said it would intensify the financial crisis the industry is already facing thanks to the coronavirus pandemic.

A pre-action notice alerting ministers of the proposed challenge was filed last week, Sky News reported, citing sources familiar to the matter. 

Sky reported that one source close to the move accused the Treasury of failing to conduct “proper and detailed economic analysis [and failing to] understand the implications this will have for job losses across sectors.”

They added that by pushing through changes, ministers were “giving the UK’s competitive advantage away to the EU as the UK becomes the only outlier in removing such benefits and concessions.”

Duty-free shopping giant Dufy and Global Blue, the tax refund specialist, are also reportedly taking part in the legal action, the broadcaster said. A public announcement could be made as soon as Tuesday.

Retail bosses, including the heads of Marks and Spencer (MKS.L) and Selfridges, have previously warned that banning VAT-free shopping for overseas visitors would trigger billions of pounds reduction to spending in stores and cost the Exchequer £2bn ($2.6bn) in lost tax revenue. It would also put around 70,000 jobs at risk.

The TaxPayers Alliance called the move a “kick in the teeth”, while the Association of International Retail (AIR) urged the chancellor to “look again at this devastating decision.”

If the move goes ahead the UK will become the only European country not to offer VAT-free shopping for international visitors.

A joint statement from claimants involved in the legal challenge said: “We continue to work with Treasury ministers and officials regarding this matter. 

“We believe there are solutions available that can address concerns, whilst protecting the UK’s competitiveness as a shopping destination and airport retail in a year that will be so critical as it recovers from the worst year in history. All are responsible for employing thousands of people and securing billions of inward spend each year. We are exploring all options available to us on this decision.”

Last week Heathrow lost its title as Europe’s busiest airport to Paris’s Charles de Gaulle as a result of the pandemic.

Passenger numbers between July and September nosedived more than 84% compared to the same period the year before. Heathrow recorded a total of 18.97 million passengers in the year to the end of September, while Charles de Gaulle had 19.27 million.

Qatar says those behind search of Australian women at Doha airport committed ‘illegal actions’

The Qatari government says those responsible for the intimate medical examinations of women at Doha airport did not follow standard procedures and have been referred to the public prosecution office.

Women on 10 flights – including 18 women bound for Sydney – were searched in early October after a newborn baby was found dumped in the terminal. The government on Friday said a preliminary investigation into the “attempted murder” of the infant, and subsequent procedures taken by airport authorities, had found “standard procedures were violated”.

Officers marched women off a Sydney-bound Qatar Airways flight earlier this month and forced them to undergo intimate examinations after a newborn baby was found abandoned at Doha airport.

“Those responsible for these violations and illegal actions have been referred to the public prosecution office,” the Qatari government said in a statement.

“This incident is the first of its kind at [the airport] which has served tens of millions of passengers without any issues like this before. What took place is wholly inconsistent with Qatar’s culture and values. Qatar is fully committed to the safety and security of all travelers.”

The government expressed the “sincerest apology for what some female travelers went through as a result of the measures”. The final report’s findings will be shared after it is completed “in the very near future”.

Australia’s foreign minister, Marise Payne, on Friday night said she welcomed the apology.

“The preliminary investigation of Qatar into this incident has shown illegal actions occurred,” she said in a statement.

‘“It is an important step that these offences have been referred to the public prosecution office. Australian passengers will be reassured that Qatar has established a specialised taskforce to review procedures and protocols to ensure there is never a repeat of this incident.”

On Wednesday, the government of Qatar said it regretted “any distress or infringement on the personal freedom of any traveller” caused by the decision to conduct intimate medical examinations of women transiting through Doha airport, in what it said was an “urgently-decided search” to find the mother of an abandoned baby.

The Australian government confirmed earlier this week that 18 women on the flight from Doha to Sydney were subjected to the compulsory examination including 13 Australian citizens. Passengers on 10 flights leaving Doha on the evening of 2 October were affected.

Scott Morrison, the Australian prime minister, has said the invasive treatment of the women was “unacceptable” and “appalling” and his government would take a strident approach in seeking answers and ensuring it would never be repeated.

Qatar apologizes after women strip-searched at airport before flight to Australia

The Qatari government has apologized after authorities forcibly examined female passengers before a recent Qatar Airways flight, in a disturbing attempt to identify if any of the women had given birth to a newborn baby abandoned at Hamad International Airport.

On Oct. 2, Sydney-bound flight 908 was delayed when a group of women were ordered to exit the plane, subjected to a “strip search,” and forced to receive medical examinations in an ambulance parked on the tarmac, after the premature baby was found at the Doha airport.

Australian authorities slammed the incident as “grossly disturbing, offensive, [and] concerning” and informed federal police. Under pressure after the report came to light, Qatar’s Government Communications Office apologized on Wednesday morning.

POLICE ID PASTOR ACCUSED OF URINATING ON FEMALE DELTA PASSENGER: ‘HE PEED ON ME!’

The communications office revealed that the baby had been found “concealed in a plastic bag and buried under garbage” at the airport, describing the desertion as an “egregious and life-threatening violation of the law.” As of Monday, the unidentified baby was said to remain in the care of medical and social workers.

According to a statement, officials searched for the infant’s parents on flights in the vicinity of where the baby was found; the Associated Press reports that women on 10 flights were subjected to the searches at the time.

“While the aim of the urgently decided search was to prevent the perpetrators of the horrible crime from escaping, the state of Qatar regrets any distress or infringement on the personal freedoms of any traveler caused by this action,” Qatari leaders said, disclosing that updates in the investigation would be shared internationally.

The Arab country gave no further explanation of how authorities decided to perform invasive vaginal examinations on the female passengers, per the outlet. Human rights activists have likened such acts under duress as equivalent to sexual assault.

“It was appalling,” Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison said of the news. “As a father of daughters, I could only shudder at the thought that any woman, Australian or otherwise, would be subjected to that.”

Morrison added that he expected to receive updates from the Qatari government’s investigation “very soon.”

Like much of the Middle East, sex outside of marriage is a criminal act in Qatar. In the past, female migrant workers have hidden pregnancies and tried to travel abroad to give birth, while others have anonymously abandoned their babies to avoid prison.

Qatar ‘Regrets’ Airport Strip-Searches Over Abandoned Baby

The government of Qatar expressed “regret” over a decision to pull more than a dozen women from a Qatar Airways flight in Doha, make them strip and subject them to invasive medical exams in ambulances on the tarmac after an abandoned newborn was found in an airport bathroom.

But the government justified officials’ actions earlier this month, saying that it was the first time an infant had been discovered in such a condition at Hamad International Airport, and it called the abandonment an “egregious and life-threatening violation of the law.”

“While the aim of the urgently decided search was to prevent the perpetrators of the horrible crime from escaping, the State of Qatar regrets any distress or infringement on the personal freedoms of any traveler caused by this action,” the government said in a statement.

The strip-searches on Oct. 2 came to light after Australian news outlets reported that the female passengers had been marched off a Sydney-bound flight at the airport in the Qatari capital. Some were made to take off their underwear and submit to an invasive exam to see if they had recently given birth, an Australian nurse told The New York Times. Older women had their bellies pressed.

“These examinations can constitute sexual assault,” Heather Barr, a lawyer and co-director of women’s rights at Human Rights Watch, said.

The case triggered shock and outrage in Australia, and the country’s federal police is investigating.

Scott Morrison, the prime minister of Australia, said on Wednesday of the invasive search: “We find this unacceptable.” He added, “It was appalling. As a father of daughters, I could only shudder at the thought that anyone would, Australian or otherwise, it would be subjected to that.”

The government statement came as new details about the episode emerged.

Qatar’s government said the newborn was found in a trash can, “concealed in a plastic bag and buried under garbage.” It said the baby had been rescued from “what appeared to be a shocking and appalling attempt to kill her.”

It said the newborn, a girl, was alive and “safe under medical care in Doha.” Information about the infant’s parents remain unknown.

Qatar’s prime minister had directed that “a comprehensive, transparent investigation into the incident be conducted,” the statement said. “The results of the investigation will be shared with our international partners.”

Australia’s foreign minister, Marise Payne, told a Senate committee hearing that a total of 18 Australian women on Flight QR908 had been subjected to the invasive searches.

Ms. Payne said that aircraft was one of 10 flights where female passengers were given the exams and that women from other countries had also been searched.

Earlier, she called the searches “a grossly, grossly disturbing, offensive, concerning set of events. It is not something I have ever heard of occurring in my life in any context.”

Women on the flight reported the searches to Australian authorities after arriving at Sydney Oct. 3. and one woman on the flight emailed the Foreign Affairs Department that night,

Qatar expresses ‘regret’ after women from 10 flights taken for medical examinations at Doha airport

The government of Qatar has said it “regrets any distress or infringement on the personal freedom of any traveller” caused by a decision to conduct intimate medical examinations of women transiting through Doha international airport, in what it said was an “urgently-decided search” to find the mother of an abandoned baby.

On Wednesday morning the Australian government confirmed that 18 women on a flight from Doha to Sydney were subjected to the compulsory medical examination, including 13 Australian citizens. Passengers from 10 flights leaving Doha on the evening of 2 October were affected.

The Qatari government broke its silence on Wednesday, three days after the incident became global news. It said the search was triggered by the discovery of a baby in a trash can at Hamad international airport, “concealed in a plastic bag and buried under garbage”.

“The baby girl was rescued from what appeared to be a shocking and appalling attempt to kill her,” the statement said. “The infant is now safe under medical care in Doha.

“This was the first instance of an abandoned infant being discovered in such a condition at HIA – this egregious and life-threatening violation of the law triggered an immediate search for the parents, including on flights in the vicinity of where the newborn was found. While the aim of the urgently-decided search was to prevent the perpetrators of the horrible crime from escaping, the State of Qatar regrets any distress or infringement on the personal freedoms of any traveler caused by this action.

Eighteen women were on the Qatar Airways flight from Doha to Sydney which has been highlighted in media reports this week.

The Australian foreign affairs minister, Marise Payne, would not name the other countries whose citizens were affected, but Agence France-Presse reported that one French woman was on the flight.

Payne told a Senate estimates hearing on Wednesday that 10 flights leaving Hamad international airport in Doha had been caught up in the search.

Payne said the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade had not become aware of the number of other flights affected until Tuesday.

“The issues which have been discussed in relation to this matter are very concerning and very distressing and the Australian government has been quite clear about that,” Payne said. “There is a series of meetings occurring in Qatar as
