Rahul was on a business visit to France. Although it was Rahul’s first visit to France, he didn’t visit Eiffel Tower, as Rahul doesn’t like visiting famous places. Rahul likes roaming in country side.

“These days it would not be a holiday without the obligatory selfie in front of a landmark. This man is in France since last 4 weeks, now escaping the country without clicking a selfie next to Eiffel Tower”, CRS Paris spokesperson Mr Nicolas Cage said.

“Eiffel Tower? I don’t go to the places where every Tom, Dick and Harry go, I don’t like visiting such landmarks,” Rahul said when he was checked by cops at the airport. “This man’s behavior is very suspicious,” Mr Cage added.

After Sushma Swaraj’s intervention, Rahul has been released. But Sushma Swaraj had to assure French authorities, “No Indian would leave the country without a selfie at Eiffel Tower.”
