IndiGo hands over passenger from Bengaluru-Kolkata flight to security agencies for not wearing mask

Days after the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DCGA) insisted airlines deboard passengers who do not wear their masks 'properly', IndiGo airlines on Saturday reportedly handed a passenger for violating COVID norms. IndiGo airlines handed over the passenger of the Bengaluru-Kolkata flight for not wearing a COVID-19 mask. Despite repeated announcements from the crew, the passenger refused to wear a mask. 

Earlier last week on Saturday, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation had asked airlines to de-board passengers who do not wear masks 'properly' despite repeated warnings. According to the officials, the passenger on IndiGo's 6E938 Bengaluru-Kolkata flight refused to sport a COVID-19 mask amid testing times. The officials claimed that the passengers refused to wear the marks despite repeated warnings. 

According to a report filed by news agency PTI, the passengers were handed over to the security agencies at the Kolkata airport. The aforementioned incident has come days after AirAsia India reportedly had to offload two passengers for not respecting the COVID-19 rules and regulations. AirAsia India offloaded two passengers from its Goa-Mumbai flight while indigo handed over two flyers to security officials for not following the COVID-19 rules.
