Pan Am Flight 73 victims’ kin question stand of US

They alleged that though the US claimed in Khobragade’s case that foreign nationals in the country were entitled to protection on a par with American citizens, the attitude of the US towards the victims of Pan Am Flight was different as it had ‘discriminated’ between American nationals and Indians.

In letters to Vikram Kumar Doraiswami, joint secretary (Americas) in the ministry of external affairs, the families of Indian victims of the plane hijack said they were ‘really dismayed and anguished’ to see how the American government treated Khobragade.

‘Obviously, there is more than what meets the eye in the Devyani Khobragade case,’ said one of the letters written on behalf of the families by Aneesh Bhanot, brother of Neerja Bhanot who was a flight attendant for Pan Am Airlines and died while saving passengers.
