Air India has imposed a four-month flying ban on Shankar Mishra, who is accused of urinating on a woman co-passenger onboard a flight in November last year, a source said on Thursday.
On November 26, 2022, an incident occurred on an Air India flight from New York to Delhi. Source said, Mishra has been barred from flying for four months. Specifics could not be ascertained right away.
However, in court, Mishra claimed that he did not relieve himself on his fellow passenger and rather that the woman passenger urinated on herself on the New York-Delhi flight on November 26.
Also, the case took another surprising turn as the flight crew submitted a four-page report suggesting that the 72-year-old passenger, the alleged victim, may have been instigated by a co-passenger. The report stated that the woman’s subsequent behaviour cast doubt about her “intent and integrity”.
Even US-based financial services company Wells Fargo also terminated its employee Shankar Mishra after the entire incident.
