A man has been booked for allegedly using abusive language and passing lewd comments towards the crew members aboard an Air India flight from New York to Delhi. An FIR has been registered by the Delhi police against the passenger for creating ruckus.

The case was registered at Delhi's IGI Airport Police station on October 1 following the complaint of the victim cabin crew staff, as per ANI. According to the FIR, a crew member working in the economy class cabin said the accused, who was originally seated at 21B and later at 45H, started passing lewd comments and abusing others on board.

"He was very loud and used very foul language which scared the passengers and families seated around him. He was also very disrespectful towards our country (India) and his behaviour was very aggressive," the FIR stated, as reported by PTI.

The Delhi police registered a case under Section 509 (word, gesture, or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman) of the Indian Penal Code, and sections 22 and 23 of the Aircraft Rules were registered against the accused passenger, Abhinav Sharma, a resident of Jalandhar in Punjab.
