Sources from Atlanta have stated that an Indian American Iowa State University professor and his white adopted son had their flight plans delayed after a Delta flight attendant reported him for suspicious activity in Atlanta. It was stated that Professor Lakshman Rajagopal, a single father, had just arrived at Hartsfield Jackson Airport after a 6 am flight from Des Moines when he was stopped by Delta employees.
He was told child trafficking has been a big issue and airlines have been told to keep an eye out for possible cases. Rajagopal says a flight attendant alerted the pilot of suspicious activity because he looked nervous when he requested a different seat for more room for him and his toddler son.
the pilot then called the Atlanta airport where two employees were waiting on
his arrival and questioned him. Furthermore it was stated that Delta offered
him a $500 voucher to use within a year. They have also said they will
use his situation as a way to improve their security training with employees.
