Drunk Man Urinates On Woman In Business Class Of US-India Air India Flight
A drunk man urinated on a woman co-passenger in the business class of an Air India flight in November and left without facing any action. Weeks after the incident, Air India has recommended that the unruly flier be placed on the no-fly list.
The Directorate General of Civil Aviation has sought a report from the airline. “We shall take action against those found negligent,” said the regulator.
On November 26, the drunk passenger allegedly unzipped and urinated on a co-passenger in her 70s in the business class of an Air India flight from New York to Delhi.
Few realised what was happening, as the lights were dimmed after lunch. After urinating, the man allegedly didn’t move until another passenger asked him to leave.
The woman complained to the crew and told them her clothes, shoes and bag were soaked in urine. The crew allegedly gave her clothes and slippers and told her to return to her seat.
After the flight landed in Delhi, the passenger allegedly left without facing repercussions for his egregious behaviour.
The airline acted after the woman wrote to Tata Group chairman N Chandrasekaran, the Times of India reported.
A police complaint has been filed against the man. “Air India constituted an internal committee and recommended to put the male passenger on the ‘no-fly list’. The matter is under a government committee and a decision is awaited,” the sources said.
