Founded in 1980 in Española, N.M., with a $1,200 loan and launched with tiny contracts to guard area grocery stores and bars, the company now guards U.S. embassies around the globe, has won security contracts in Iraq, and it provides security checkpoints at American airports.
Daya Khalsa is president of Akal Security, a New Mexico-based company that has benefited greatly from the surge of Sept. 11-related government contracts. Akal is controlled by American converts to a Sikh religious sect.
