Reports said they were flying to Phuket from Singapore for a vacation.
Divya's daughter only weighs 8.5 kilograms and is the size of a 1-year-old child.
"Our flight that was to take off at 7:35am has been delayed by an hour so far because they refuse to fly with my special needs child. They want to deplane us because they refuse to take her," she wrote on her Facebook page.
In a subsequent post this afternoon, Divya updated that she is "saddened beyond words" over the incident and revealed that the captain callously said that it is not his problem if her child slides off her seat and hurts herself during the flight.
She also posted a video of the incident.
