'Racial profiling': Indian-origin woman stripped at German airport
Basappa wrote in a series of Facebook posts that they were travelling with their four-year-old daughter when she was subjected to a 'random check' at Frankfurt.
She was allegedly asked to lift her dress or remove it, despite clearing a full body scan, in front of her daughter.
When she requested gentler checks due to a recent abdominal surgery, the officials shouted at her.
Not the first time
"…I was the only person pulled aside and peeking at my husband instantly changed the woman's mind about the strip search," Basappa wrote.
"I'm always the 'chosen one' for random security checks," she added.
