On October 11, 2001 The Boston Globe reported "Sikh is prosecuted for sword." The article explains that Sher Singh, the Sikh man pulled from a train and taken off in handcuffs due to a mistaken notion that he was a terrorist, will now face weapons charges. Singh was carrying a kirpan, a ceremonial sword, when he was arrested.
