Sex shame for Indian airline chief

London: An airline director has quit his six-figure salary job at Heathrow amid claims that he sexually molested four women.
Ashvini Kumar Sharma resigned as head of Air India's UK and Europe operation. He is facing charges of sexual harassment after a woman employed as a contractor by the airline filed an official complaint with the police.
The 22-year-old woman works for a fuelling and handling company contracted to several airlines including Air India.
She is thought to be one of four employees who have made official complaints to Air India management at Heathrow. All are thought to be eastern European and in their twenties.
Sources in the company have told the Evening Standard that senior officials at the airline have called for an immediate internal investigation after ordering Sharma to step down from his job.
A Met spokesman confirmed that Heathrow CID is investigating an allegation of harassment.
