 The flight, with 93 passengers, including Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami, was ready for take off at around 1200 noon on Monday when the child started crying in her mother's lap. Though the mother made efforts, the infant did not clam down and continuously cried causing disturbance to other passengers. Later, the infant and her mother Lakshmi Devi (30) were de-boarded from the flight on the request of the crew members after which it took off for Delhi after a delay of about 15 minutes. Her husband Rahul continued with his journey, 
 "The request was made since the mother was concerned about her daughter’s health as she was continuously crying. Our crew and ground staff extended full support to the passengers, while ensuring all relevant protocols were followed. Safety and comfort of all our customers is our utmost priority which was highly appreciated in this case by the passenger and her family,” the spokesperson added.
