Airline bars woman to board flight at Karachi airport over mental disorder

An international airline on Friday refused a woman passenger to board a Norway-bound flight from Jinnah International Airport, Karachi, citing her mental health condition.

According to sources, the airline officials refused to issue a boarding pass to a woman identified as Rabeah Iqbal, who had to travel via an international airline to Norway making a stopover at Doha.

The airline administration claimed that the woman was suffering from mental disorder and asked her to submit a medical certificate.

The woman created ruckus at the Karachi airport after she was denied travelling on the Norway-bound flight.

On January 15, the Airport Security Force (ASF) seized bullets from the baggage of a woman at the Islamabad International Airport.

Seven bullets were seized from the luggage of Miraj Bibi, a resident of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s Mohmand agency, according to officials.

She, however, was allowed to board a Kuwait-bound flight (KU-206) after she told the officials that the bullets were mistakenly placed in her luggage.
