Khangembam’s sister Mensy too said the immigration officer asking about her nationality was “unfortunate”. “It’s unfortunate that my sister who was carrying an Indian passport was asked by the immigration officer about her nationality that too very sarcastically, which is totally not related to her trip. Such type of treatment is unacceptable, and the authorities concerned must look into the matter very seriously so that such incidents don not occur in future.”
