2 deboarded from flight at IGI airport for ‘misbehaving’ with crew

    Two passengers on a SpiceJet flight were deboarded and handed over to police at IGI Airport Monday after they allegedly misbehaved with an air hostess. Police said they have arrested one of the men, Absar Alam, and registered an FIR under IPC section 354 (molestation).

    A senior officer said, “Security staff told us the airline staff raised allegations of molestation. We tried contacting the air hostess but the flight took off and later she boarded another flight… “ The reason behind the argument between the passenger and crew member is being ascertained, said police.

    In a purported video of the incident, which was circulated on social media, a passenger is seen shouting at a cabin crew member. They are seen arguing inside the flight. Few passengers are seen siding with the man, others are seen trying to intervene and stop the argument. The video was allegedly shot by one of the passengers on a Delhi-Hyderabad flight.

    “During boarding at Delhi, one passenger behaved in an unruly and inappropriate manner, harassing and causing disturbance to cabin crew. The crew informed PIC (Pilot in Command) and security staff of the same. The said passenger and a co-passenger, who were travelling together, were offloaded and handed over to the security team,” SpiceJet said in a statement.
