Finally the V.I.P arrived half an hour late and went directly for the security check. During the check the security personnel came across weapon with live cartilages. He was requested not to carry the weapon with live cartilages. He was requested not to carry the weapon on flight. However the V.I.P. refused to part with the weapon for personal security. When he was asked for the license, he said he was not carrying it. The security personnel refused to give permission to the V.I.P. to board the aircraft .This led to heated argument and in rage ‘Lille V.I.P. threw one of the security staff across the floor.

iv) What would you do when prevention fails and damage is done?
