Pakistan Prime Minister Abbasi Full Body Search | Fact Check

Yesterday news appeared online that Pakistan’s Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi went through a security check at New York’s JFK airport during a recent US visit. Now some Facebook users are sharing this photograph as that of Shahid Khaqan Abbasi undergoing the humiliation of a full body search:

 Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, pakistan prime minister, full body search, cavity search, fact check

The image shared above is NOT that of Abbasi. It must be noted that the Pakistan PM was frisked, but he had not undergone full body search.

The image belongs to some passenger at St. Petersburg Airport, Russia. The image is on Google since February 2015. A Polish website report of February 16, 2015 has used this image to narrate the incident that took place in St. Petersburg airport, where one of the passengers was asked to take off his shoes and belt. This made him so frustrated that he decided to pull off everything he was wearing and go through the gate naked.
