Mr Singh had arrived on a flight from the Los Angeles to O’Hare International airport on 19th October 2020 and he said that he “was scared to go home due to Covid.”
Cook County Judge Susana Ortiz expressed her surprise at the case and said, “So if I understand you correctly, you’re telling me that an unauthorised, non-employee individual was allegedly living within a secure part of the O’Hare airport terminal from 19 October 2020 to 16 January 2021, and was not detected? I want to understand you correctly.”

He is however, charged with felony criminal trespass to a restricted area of the airport and misdemeanor theft. He is barred from entering the airport until he is able to post 1000 dollars for bail.
