Passenger molests Vistara cabin crew on Lucknow-Delhi flight, arrested

62-year-old bizman held for sexually harassing air hostess

A Vistara spokesperson said: "A member of our cabin crew operating flight number United Kingdom 997 from Lucknow to Delhi on March 24, 2018, reported an incident of sexual harassment by a passenger".

The incident took place when the flight UK997 from Lucknow landed in Delhi and was preparing for deplaning on March 24.

Confirming the news, Sanjay Bhatia, DCP (airport) said, "The complainant told that when passengers were de-boarding the flight at Delhi airport, as per her job she was standing near the exit gate and guiding passengers when the accused touched her inappropriately". We have reported the matter to the Police and other relevant authorities. An FIR is registered and the investigation is on.

The actor had said that she was on a Vistara flight from Delhi to Mumbai when a co-passenger sitting behind her put up his feet on her armrest.

Later the airline apologized to the actress for the incident and said it ordered a probe into it while assuring the company has "zero tolerance" for such behavior. Later, the Vistara Airlines ordered an enquiry and apologized while the Sahar Police Station in Mumbai lodged a case and later arrested Sachdeva. She accused a fellow passenger of molesting her on the flight and narrated the entire incident as tears rolled down her cheeks.

Sanjay Bhatia, DCP (airport) was quoted by The Hindu as saying that on March 24, a crew member air hostess of Vistara airlines, reported a matter of harassment in flight UK-997 from Lucknow to Delhi.

A 62-year-old Pune resident arrested last Saturday for allegedly harassing a Vistara air hostess may be the first person to be recommended by an airline for being put on the recently enforced no fly list (NFL). Initially, when asked by a crew member, he put his clothes back on.

Harassing passengers in airlines have become very common in India and also in overseas these days.
