Full-service airline Vistara has filed a police complaint against a passenger who allegedly sexually harassed a crew member on board a Lucknow-Delhi flight.
The airline released a statement saying that it does not tolerate abusive or unruly behaviour by passengers that put the safety of its staff and other customers at risk.
“We have reported the matter to the police and other relevant authorities. An FIR is registered and investigation is on. We are fully committed to providing our cooperation to all the authorities,” said a Vistara spokesperson.
A senior executive of Vistara said the passenger was inappropriately touching a member of the crew from behind in the aisle while deboarding. “Another passenger saw the incident and recorded it. An FIR was filed by the crew with video as evidence and other passengers as witnesses”, he said, asking not to be named.
This is not the first such incident of a passenger misbehaving with airline crew member. Last year, Shiv Sena MP Ravindra Gaikwad assaulted an Air India staff member after which he was put in the 'No Fly' list.
