Aviation Minister seeks report about a man urinating on a lady's seat mid Air India flight

Union Minister Jayant Sinha Saturday directed Air India officials to investigate an incident where a drunk passenger allegedly urinated on a woman’s seat. The incident took place aboard an international flight from New York to New Delhi on August 30. Air India has been accused of letting the passenger go scot-free at New Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport.

Sinha was appraised of the incident on Twitter after a user said, “Disgraceful Air India yesterday on your flight AI102 from JFK to Delhi a drunk passenger removed his pants and peed on the seat my mother was sitting!!! She was traveling alone and is completely traumatized! Reply ASAP.”

When asked if the crew responded, the user, Indrani Ghosh, added, “Except for giving her another seat, nothing else that we know of yet! My mother while waiting in her wheelchair at Delhi airport (for her connecting flight) saw him walk away.”

Sinha, in response, tagged Air India and directed it to investigate the incident. “Please follow up immediately and report back to MoCA / DGCA. Very unfortunate that your mother had to go through this harrowing experience,” he tweeted.

Air India has forwarded the complaint to the departments concerned.
