    A UNIVERSITY lecturer has made a complaint of racial harassment against an airline after being told not to sleep with his hands covered as "a matter of security".
    Dr Ashok Malhotra, who teaches at Edinburgh University, was told he would be escorted off the BMI Baby plane if he did not keep his hands visible at all times.
    A flight attendant woke him after he had covered his head and hands with his jacket, saying his actions had "disturbed" other passengers.
