Chinese tourist stopped at airport due to clerical error by KGMU

Lucknow: An elderly Chinese tourist was stopped by authorities before boarding flight to her country at Delhi airport. The authorities claimed that tourist visa of 69-year-old Chen Mei Ching has expired.

However, the woman claimed that she suffered a major injury in her leg while visiting Lucknow. She had to undergo treatment at the city's King George's Medical University (KGMU) due to which she could not leave the country on time.

On checking her medical prescription and other documents, the airport official spotted a major clerical error on the part of hospital staff. The hospital slip mentions her name as 'Chai My Chin' instead of 'Chen Mei Ching'.

The woman was later handed over to the embassy officials for further investigation.
