Drunk Man Urinates on Senior Citizen Co-Passenger on Air India Flight: Airline Imposes One-Month Ban and Lodges Police Complaint
In a disgusting and outrageous incident, a man reportedly committed a heinous act of indecency by unzipping his pants and urinating on a female co-passenger on an Air India flight. The perpetrator, who was reportedly drunk at the time of the incident, exposed himself to the woman, a senior citizen seated in business class, while on a flight from New York to Delhi. Shockingly, the woman, who is in her seventies, sought help from the cabin crew, but they failed to intervene and apprehend the unruly passenger.
The woman has since accused the crew of not being proactive in addressing the sensitive and traumatic situation. Air India has taken action by banning the male passenger for one month and filing a police complaint against him for his reprehensible actions. Additionally, an internal committee has been formed to investigate the crew’s handling of the incident and address any deficiencies in the airline’s response.
This is not the first time that Air India has faced criticism for its handling of incidents on its flights. Recently, playback singer Benny Dayal called out the airline, along with several others, for its lack of care and concern for the instruments of musicians traveling within the country.
“Indigo, Vistara, Air India, SpiceJet, you guys have zero care or concern for a musician’s instrument,” Dayal said in a video posted on his official Instagram account.
Air India must recognize that this incident is not an isolated one. There have been numerous reports of passengers being mistreated, harassed, and assaulted while traveling on their planes. This is a systemic issue that needs to be addressed immediately.
It is time for Air India to take a hard look at their policies and procedures and make the necessary changes to protect their passengers. This means implementing stronger protocols for handling incidents of harassment and assault, training staff to recognize and prevent these types of incidents, and holding those who perpetrate these actions accountable.
Air India cannot continue to turn a blind eye to the safety and dignity of its passengers. It is time for them to step up and take real action to ensure that all travelers are treated with respect and given the protection they deserve.
