A disturbing incident occurs on a transatlantic flight. A drunk bank manager urinates on a 72-year-old fellow passenger and then goes into hiding. Using his online activities, the police can arrest him.
An Indian manager has been arrested by police for allegedly urinating on an elderly passenger on a transatlantic flight. A police spokesman in Delhi has now confirmed the arrest of manager Shankar Mishra to the AFP news agency without giving any further details.
A 72-year-old passenger wrote to Air India to complain that Mishra, who appeared to be drunk, peed on her on a flight from New York to New Delhi in late November. Air India then turned on the police.
A letter distributed through a lawyer initially said that Mishra had already settled the matter with the woman concerned and had paid for her clothes and luggage to be cleaned. Mishra's previous employer, the major US bank Wells Fargo, fired the manager on Friday after the "deeply disturbing" allegations became known.
Air India on Saturday admitted it had failed to "handle the incident better" and was reviewing its in-flight alcohol serving policy. The airline had been heavily criticized for its inappropriate handling of the woman's complaint, including its failure to report the incident in a timely manner.
