External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Monday apologised the Manipuri girl who was allegedly harassed at Indira Gandhi International airport in Delhi.

Monika Khangembam, in a Facebook post, alleged that an immigration officer at Delhi’s IGI airport ‘humiliated’ her by asking unnecessary questions about her nationality.

As per the post, the officer repeatedly asked Monika questions to test her ‘knowledge’ about India and even told her that ‘she did not look like an Indian’.

The foreign minister took a cognizance of the post and assured Monika about taking the issue to notice of Home Minister Rajnath Singh.

On Sunday night, Swaraj tweeted: “Monika Khangembam – I am sorry to know this. Immigration is not with me. I will speak to my senior colleague Shri @rajnathsingh ji to sensitise Immigration officials at the airport.”

While the issue is yet to be probed, Monika Khangembam’s post is going viral on social media and drawing huge outrage from people on Twitter and Facedbook.
