Delhi Police file FIR against Mumbai businessman who peed on Air India co-flyer | Mumbai News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: Delhi Police have filed an FIR under IPC sections dealing with outraging the modesty of a woman, misconduct by a drunken person and committing an obscene act in a public place against a man who allegedly urinated on a septuagenarian female passenger on a flight from New York to New Delhi on November 26.

Police have identified the suspect as Shekhar Mishra, a businessman in his fifties from Mumbai. He has been located and efforts are being made to apprehend him, an official said.
The FIR was filed on Wednesday on the complaint of the woman, based in Karnataka, which she had earlier submitted to the airline. Police claimed they were informed about the incident in brief only on December 28 by the airline, after which they contacted the victim and the airline seeking details of the passenger and the complaint.

Cops on tail of AI unruly flyer, will quiz crew members too
Police have filed an FIR against a Mumbai-based businessman for urinating on a woman flyer in the business class on a New York-Delhi flight in November.
Police officials have also received details about the crew members who were on board the flight, and will question them to ascertain the sequence of events. As per information available, the man, who is in his 50s, was heavily drunk and got up to go to the bathroom. Since he was not in his senses, he did not realise it was a passenger’s seat and not the bathroom and continued to relieve himself.
The woman was disappointed with the response of the crew and wrote a letter to Tata Group chairman N Chandrasekaran. “Shortly after lunch was served and the lights were switched off, another passenger walked to my seat, completely inebriated. He unzipped his pants, relieved himself and continued to expose me to his private parts,” said the letter.
He moved only after one of her co-passengers asked him to leave. When he walked away, the woman immediately notified a cabin crew member. “My clothes, shoes and bag were completely soaked in urine. The stewardess followed me to the seat, verified that it smelled of urine, and sprayed disinfectant on my bag and shoes…” the letter said.
After the woman passenger cleaned herself in the lavatory, the crew gave her a set of pyjamas and disposable slippers to change into. She stood by the toilet for about 20 minutes as she did not want to return to her soiled seat. Thereafter, she was given the narrow crew seat, where she sat for an hour and was then told to return to her seat. “Although staff had put sheets on top, the area was still damp and reeking of urine,” she said.
Two hours later, she was given another crew seat, where she sat for the remainder of the flight. She learnt later from a fellow passenger that several seats in the first class were vacant. “At the end of the flight, the staff told me they would get me a wheelchair to ensure I clear customs as quickly as possible. However, the wheelchair deposited me at a waiting area, where I waited for 30 minutes, and nobody came to get me. I finally had to clear customs on my own and collect the luggage by myself-all in Air India pyjamas and socks,” she said.
On the other hand, Mishra got off the flight and left the airport without any action.
