Drunk man ‘urinated’ on woman in New York-Delhi Air India flight in November, DGCA to probe1 min read
An inebriated man allegedly urinated on another passenger on an Air India flight from New York to Delhi in November last year.
The unruly passenger allegedly didn’t move after the incident and had to be asked to leave by a co-passenger.
The woman approached the crew, complaining that her clothes, shoes and bag were soaked.
After the incident, which occurred in the business class section, the man left without facing any action.
Weeks after the incident, Air India has filed a case has recommended the man be placed on the no-fly list.
The Directorate General of Civil Aviation has sought a report from the airline into the incident that was revealed after the woman wrote to the group chairman of Air India, N Chandrasekaran.
‘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. The lights had been dimmed after a meal.
Air India had expressed strong condemnation after an identical incident in August 2018, when a drunk man urinated on the seat of a passenger, coincidentally on a New York-Delhi flight.
