Anger after India airline removes disabled teenager

India's aviation minister has said he is investigating a domestic airline after it allegedly refused to let a disabled teenager board its flight.

The airline's staff told the teenager's parents that he was a risk to other passengers.

The incident sparked widespread outrage with many calling out the airline for discriminatory behaviour.

IndiGo has denied the allegations, saying it prides itself on being an inclusive organisation.

Aviation minister Jyotiraditya Scindia on Monday promised "appropriate action", saying he was personally investigating the incident.

"There is zero tolerance towards such behaviour. No human being should have to go through this," he wrote on Twitter.
