A drunk man allegedly urinated on an elderly woman co-passenger in the business class of an Air India flight in November. The incident took place on November 26 when an Air India flight AI 102 was flying from New York to Delhi.
Shortly after lunch was served and the lights were switched off, the man walked to the seat of the female passenger, unzipped his pants, urinated, and flashed his private parts. And when her fellow passengers and the woman protested against the man, he went back to his seat.
The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has also sought a report of the incident from the airline. “We are seeking a report from the Airline and shall take action against those found negligent,” the DGCA said on Wednesday.
The woman complained to the crew and told them her clothes, shoes and bag were soaked in urine. The crew allegedly gave her a set of pajamas and slippers and told her to return to her seat, claiming no other seat was available. The female passenger said that the crew members did not bother to help her. Further, she said she was not given a wheelchair by the crew members.
The woman passenger had later written to Tata Group Chairman N. Chandrasekaran, informing him about the incident. After this, the investigation was launched by Air India.
