Nepal National Registered in Delhi Police Case for Misbehavior and Damage on Air India Flight

A case has been filed by Delhi Police against a Nepal national for verbally abusing a cabin crew member and causing damage to the lavatory door during an Air India flight from Toronto, officials confirmed. The incident took place when the passenger, identified as Mahesh Singh Pandit, changed his seat and began verbally abusing the economy class crew members, according to the filed FIR by cabin supervisor Aditya Kumar.

The complaint stated that the crew members immediately reported the passenger’s behavior to the pilot, who issued an oral warning. Following the lunch service, a smoke alarm was triggered, prompting Aditya to open the lavatory door. Inside, he discovered the passenger smoking with a cigarette lighter, resulting in a confrontation.

“When I opened the door in front of the passenger, he pushed me back and returned to his seat in 26F. When I tried to intervene, he pushed and verbally abused me. Subsequently, he broke the lavatory door on 3F-RC. I immediately informed the captain and, following his instructions, along with cabin crew member Punit Sharma and four other passengers, we attempted to restrain him as per standard operating procedures,” Aditya stated in the FIR.

Aditya further mentioned that they were able to restrain the unruly passenger with the assistance of 10 other passengers. However, they later received information that the accused individual had also attempted to physically assault other passengers. The Delhi Police registered a case against the accused under sections 323/506/336 of the Indian Penal Code and 22, 23, 25 of the Aircraft Rules at the IGI Police Station.

Authorities are currently conducting further investigations into the incident.
