    According to Farhan Azmi's tweet, he was supposed to board a flight to Mumbai from Goa airport which is when two security officers purposely singled out him and his family at the security check. The argument started between Farhan and armed officers when an armed male officer tried to physically touch him and tell his wife and son to stand in another line, while other families were standing together.

    Farhan's tweet read, "Dear @CISFHQrs I was boarding for Mumbai on @IndiGo6E 6386, 18:40 hrs flight & these racist officers R P Singh, A K Yadav, commander Rout & senior officer (SP category) Bahadur purposely singled me & my family (wife & son) immediately after they read out my name out loud to team."

    Ayesha Takia's husband also claimed that an officer passed sexual and racist comments while he was checking his pockets. Notably, Bahadur reached the spot and instead of resolving the issue, he identified him and said, "isko udhar karo,ye maharashtra nahin hai."

Shame on such officers who disrespect the uniform to satisfy their racist egos @CISFHQrs @AAI_Official @aaigoaairport @goacm @samajwadiparty @DrPramodPSawant @abuasimazmi @rais_shk."

    Farhan Azmi thanked Goa Airport for the prompt response and tweeted, "Thank you for your prompt response @aaigoaairport This was highly embarrassing & disturbing to go through with my wife & son around. I will be taking this up legally as well. Appreciate your message."
