An Air India passenger on Friday allegedly relieved himself on a seat where a woman was seated, Times of India reported

The incident transpired on the national flag-carrier's New York-New Delhi flight. Manhattan-based lawyer-yoga teacher Indrani Ghosh, the "traumatised" woman's daughter, took to Twitter after.

India's DG Civil chided for airlines dropping poop midair

“Disgraceful on your flight AI 102 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."


Junior Civil Aviation Minister Jayant Sinha has ordered a probe into the incident. Responding to Ghosh on Twitter, the Indian minister ordered the airline to "report back to aviation ministry/DGCA." He also termed the "harrowing" incident "unfortunate".

Ghosh wants the airline to take strict action against the passenger.   Air India has initiated proceedings  and promised swift action, a source said.

CJP takes notice of airline’s negligence

The Manhattan-based lawyer-yoga teacher also expressed her anguish over the attitude of an Air India call centre representative contacted in connection with the episode. "Really FEEDBACK!… Don’t you think by not taking action against such behavior the airline is giving him a free pass!!? By reporting such obscene and offensive behavior the airline can stop such person creating nuisance in future."

krag | 3 years ago | Reply If this happened on a USA airline it's likely the passengers would have beat the crap out of him and he would have been tied to his chair for the rest of the flight. Exposing yourself lands you in jail - peeing on someone lands you in jail - acting drunk on an airline lands you in jail.
