Taking cognizance of the victim’s tweet, the Bengaluru airport authorities said that this should not have happened at all. Also, the woman has been asked to share her phone number and address, so that the matter can be understood closely. “We are saddened by the incident and it should not have been done. Considering the seriousness of the incident, we have taken up the matter with the CISF.”
