An MD doctor from Tiruchirapalli in Tamil Nadu, was taken into custody on Tuesday morning seconds after his Indigo flight from Lucknow to Bengaluru landed at 8:32 am. The security personnel deployed the doctor at the Kempegowda International Airport in Bengaluru based on allegations of unruly behavior levelled against by him by an air hostess.

In her statement, the air hostess alleged that the doctor had sexually harassed her. Yet, she decided to file only a complaint of unruly behavior against the passenger. The information was conveyed to Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) personnel at the Kempegowda International Airport and personnel arrived at the bay and took the accused to the terminal.

According to a report, a written application from the airline manager to hand over the doctor to the airport police station was received by CISF personnel. The manager also saw that a case of unruly behavior is registered against the accused. No FIR was filed in this matteras the woman did not want to make a big dispute out of this, said an officer with the airport police who also added that unruly behavior is a non-cognizable offence.

Similar such instances have been reported in the other parts of the country in the past. Last year, in March, a 62-year-old passenger was accused of molesting a cabin crew member of Air Vistara. The air hostess had claimed that the airline had taken a hard stand on the subject, saying that it will not tolerate abusive or unruly behavior by passengers. A case was lodged against the accused passenger and he was recommended to be put on the no-fly list (NFL).
