Three refused boarding as Covid-19 negative report lapsed by a minute

Bengaluru: A family of three, including a pregnant woman, was denied boarding on an IndiGo flight to Dubai, citing that the 48-hour validity of their RT-PCR negative test reports had lapsed by one minute.

They were not allowed to board the flight even though they took Rapid RT-PCR tests at the airport for Rs 3,000 each. All Indian passengers headed to the UAE must clear this pre-departure test, besides carrying RT-PCR negative reports not older than 48 hours.

Rukhsar Memon, 28, husband Suhail Syed, 39, and his mother Mamtaz Munawar, 63, had come to Bengaluru for their annual holiday at their Nandidurga Road home on October 9 this year.
