Elderly foreign national allegedly thrashed by Delhi airport staffer

New Delhi: In a shocking incident in a high-security zone, a foreign national was allegedly thrashed by a Delhi airport employee at the 1D Terminal here on Wednesday afternoon.

DNA reported that the foreign national, who is in India to travel the country with a friend, was assaulted by an employee of  Air India Singapore Airport Terminal Services (AISATS) after a heated war of words between the two. It is reported that the passenger inquired why she had been charged a certain amount for her ticket but was not satisfied with the reply she received from the woman behind the Air India ticket counter at the terminal. The passenger then clicked a photo of the employee - accusing her of stealing her money, before making her way to the exit gate.

It is then that the employee is believed to have emerged from behind the ticket counter and began pulling the passenger's handbag before allegedly slapping, shoving and pushing her. Eyewitness accounts say that CISF personnel refused to intervene and it was only when fellow travellers raised an alarm that the victim could be pulled to safety. By then, however, she had suffered injuries and was bleeding.
