Urination incident: Delhi Police summons Air India staff, father of accused


NEW DELHI: The Delhi Police on Friday issued summons to Air India staff present on flight on which the urination incident took place, as well as the father of accused.
Summons have been issued in connection with the incident in which a passenger allegedly urinated on a co-passenger onboard a flight from New York to Delhi.
According to sources quoted by PTI, Air India staff, including pilot and co-pilot, were issued summons for Friday, but they didn’t appear. Now, they have been summoned at the office of deputy commissioner of police (airport) on Saturday at 10.30 am.
Meanwhile, Shyam Mishra — the father of the accused — has also been summoned for questioning, ANI reported. In his son’s defence, Sharma said: “I don’t think he would do it. She (the victim) is a 72-year-old woman, she is like his mother. He (the accused, his son) is a 34-year-old man. How can he do it? He is married and has an 18-year-old daughter.”
The accused, Shankar Mishra, had urinated on his co-passenger, a senior citizen in her seventies, allegedly in an inebriated condition in the business class of the Air India flight on November 26 last year.
The development comes hours after the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) rebuked airlines for their failure to act against unruly passengers in recent days.
The regulator said that the manner in which airlines have handled such cases has “tarnished the image of air travel”.
Meanwhile, in an internal communication, Air India CEO Campbell Wilson told the airline staff to report any improper behaviour on aircraft to authorities at the earliest even if the matter appears to have been settled.
Wilson wrote the communication to employees after aviation safety regulator DGCA slammed the Tata Group airline, saying that its conduct was “unprofessional” and led to the “systematic failure” on the New York-Delhi flight incident, which it did nor report to the DGCA.
According to the FIR on the New York-New Delhi flight incident, shortly after lunch was served and the lights were switched off on board AI 102 of November 26, the inebriated male passenger seated in business class seat 8A walked to the elderly woman’s seat, unzipped his pants and urinated on her.
The woman alleged that despite her unwillingness, she was forced to confront the accused and negotiate with him, further disorienting her, according to the FIR registered on Wednesday based on her complaint to Air India.
