People urinating on an elderly person on a flight will be arrested: Delhi Police form teams, and Air India will take action against crew members as well
Delhi Police has made preparations to arrest the accused who urinated on an elderly woman on a flight coming from New York to Delhi. The name of the accused is Shekhar Mishra, who is a resident of Mumbai. His age is around 45 years. A case has been registered against him under sections 354, 294, 509, and 510 of IPC.
Delhi Police has formed teams to arrest the accused. At the same time, Air India has also taken action on it. He has been banned for 30 days.
A man on board an Air India flight urinated on an elderly woman travelling in business class. The incident is on November 26 last year. The airline did not take any action on this incident. The elderly woman complained to the chairman of the Tata Group, then the airline's officers became active and lodged an FIR with the Delhi Police.
According to a Times of India report, the incident came to light when the victim woman wrote a letter to Tata Group chairman N Chandrasekaran. The woman wrote in the letter that she did not want to sit in the dirty seat. So he was given another seat. After an hour he was asked to return to his seat. His seat was covered with sheets, but there was a foul smell of urine.
The woman alleges that she was not given another cabin seat earlier despite several business-class seats being vacant. The crew sprayed disinfectant there, but the woman protested to take the same seat, then she was given another seat.
The National Commission for Women has also taken cognizance of the matter of indecency with an elderly woman. Commission Chairperson Rekha Sharma has written a letter to the Delhi Police Commissioner directing him to immediately register a case in the matter under the provisions of the relevant law and take strict action against those guilty of causing mental trauma to an elderly woman.
The elderly woman has also demanded action against the crew members of the flight in her complaint to the chairman of the Tata Group. To this, Air India said that male passengers on the New York-Delhi flight Air India are committed to assisting law enforcement agencies as well as regulatory authorities.
We have also constituted an internal committee to inquire into the lapses of the Air India crew and also to find out the reasons for the delay in prompt action in the matter. We are also in regular touch with the victim passenger and his family during the investigation and reporting process.
Air India told DGCA that the victim woman has been refunded her fare. The airlines did not call DGCA's law enforcement because the victim woman had withdrawn the initial request for action. Air India is trying to resolve the matter.
