Racially harassed Manipuri woman demands action against IGI immigration desk

Manipuri woman Monika Khangembam, who was allegedly subjected to racial treatment at Indira Gandhi International Airport’s immigration desk, has asked the authorities to take action and has been plans to write to the Ministry of External Affairs about the incident.

“I would like the authorities to take necessary action. I am planning to write to the Ministry of External Affairs about this,” said Khangembam.

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.
