They’re looking at a jail term of 10-12 years at least.

JK. It’s fine. There won’t be any issues traveling.

No issues! They can travel. Have done lots of bookings without middle names.

In fact, my last employer's travel department issued worldwide memo, instructing all NOT to put middle name/initial on the booking.

Some airline/booking engines, append middle initial to the end of the first name.

For example, if Nirav Deepak Modi books as Nirav D. Modi, some airlines/booking engine translates that into Niravd Modi.
Now, some computers at airport/airlines will raise an exception that Names are NOT matching!!

BTW, Vadodara - please.

Should be no problem.. I had a Jet Airways ticket last year with my first name, middle name and surname all joined and listed in the space for surname. In the space for first name was "Mr". It was no problem in both DEL and IXB. The check-in agents were not concerned and asked no questions. So a simple issue of no middle name IMHO would be of no issue.
