hai,

I had connected a usb in port-no '2' and I have to run the code when the usb is disconnected. How could I know the usb is disconnect using the status of port no in shell script.

Use the output of the 'lsusb' command.

You could use a udev rule to run a script when the USB device is unplugged.
