What Actually Happened on the Air India Flight?
It has been alleged that Shankar urinated on a 70-year-old woman while drunk. The incident happened on November 26 on a flight to travel from New York to Delhi.
The old woman informed the cabin crew about the incident but no action was taken against Shankar. Even after landing that flight at Delhi airport, Shankar left for his home. No action was taken against him.
However, the National Commission for Women has been proactive about the incident. After that, an FIR has been lodged. According to reports, the incident took place on flight AI-102. After the flight took off from the New York airport, lunch was served to the passengers.
Then aircraft lights were turned off to allow the passengers to rest. After that, Shankar came in front of the old woman’s seat and unzipped his pants, and started urinating.
Even after urinating, the man stood there exposing his private parts for a long time. After that, when the rest of the passengers started protesting Shankar left from there.
However, the old woman’s body, clothes, shoes, bag, and seat got wet in the accused’s urine. The cabin crew then gave the old woman some clothes. However, the passenger has to sit on that urine-soaked seat as there is no other seat available. A cabin crew draped a sheet over the seat.
