Air India Orders Probe After Drunk Man Urinates On Woman's Seat In Flight

New Delhi:  National carrier Air India has commenced an internal probe on the incident of an inebriated passenger on a New York-Delhi flight urinating on the seat of an elderly woman two days ago. Airline sources said a probe has commenced on the basis of an initial report submitted to the authorities.

"A detailed internal investigation is now on to ascertain if the crew followed the assigned SOPs (standard operating procedures) and whether they reported the matter when the aircraft landed back in Delhi, among other things."

The airline's In-Flight Services division has been tasked to carry out the investigation.

"There is anger among the public over the fact that such an incident did occur and that the inebriated person was allowed to walk out of the airport. He should have been apprehended on arrival in New Delhi. Even a complaint to Air India's security team would have resulted in some action," a source said.
