The woman who wanted to travel to India on the event of her father's death was not just refused for it, but had to face an appalling behaviour by one of the officers at the Indian consulate at New York on November 24.

The video was taken to Twitter by who wrote in the post, 'Disgusting rude behaviour by an Indian consulate officer in New York towards a woman applying for a visa to perform the last rites of her father. Who does he think he is. He's a govt SERVANT hired to serve Indians not screw Indians.'


He also tagged the official Twitter handles of the Indian Embassy in Washington, DC and New York along the current Minister of External Affairs of the Government of India Dr.S Jaishankar, grabbing their attention to look into the matter.


Have a look at the video here:

According to TOI, the woman's father had passed away and she had applied for visa to visit the country. The officer lost his cool and rather angrily returned her application and the visa fee submitted by her.

He also refused to point out any shortcomings in her application and continued to castigate the woman. After the video of the incident went viral, visa was issued to the woman and disciplinary proceedings were ordered against the officer.

On this some netizens got triggered to their fury, yet several ten not judge over the cut-short video.

A Twitter user replied to the video, 'We don’t have the full video. OCIs are notoriously rude to Indian consulate staff and high level entitlement. Won’t blame the staff member.'

Another contradicted the behaviour seen the viral video and wrote,' Wow. This is the exact opposite behavior I experienced in the Indian Embassy at Hague. Lost my passport and started panicking. Dude at the embassy calmed me down and said “We are here for you. Don’t worry” I was relieved. My new passport came in 3 weeks.'
