Man detained for unruly behaviour, family misses flight

Dabolim: A family of five, which included a cancer patient, her son recovering from surgery and her 83-year-old mother, was detained at the Dabolim international airport on Sunday by a CISF personnel after a ruckus broke out over an unclear e-boarding pass on the passenger's phone.
On Monday, Patricia Afonso, the passenger and an employee of the Airports Authority of India (AAI) in Mumbai, lodged a complaint with the airport police against the CISF, alleging harassment. On the same day, the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) also lodged a complaint with the airport police saying that their assistant sub inspector was ill treated by a passenger on Sunday night.
However, the airport director B C H Negi informed that the Afosnso family apologised after they were shown CCTV footage of them behaving badly with the official. They were also shown written witness statements accounting their bad behaviour. He added that they later realised their mistake and apologised to the CISF.
