Mumbai: A passenger travelling in Indigo flight number 6E 89, which was enroute to Calicut from Dubai, has been arrested on Thursday morning for unruly behaviour with the crew members and fellow passengers on board.
The flight was diverted to Mumbai this morning where he was handed over to the local police at 9.15 am.
Indigo, through a statement, said, "IndiGo confirms the diversion of its flight 6E 89 (Dubai-Calicut) to Mumbai this morning on grounds of unruly behavior on board. A little before landing, a passenger seated on 5D (who was accompanied by his brother) suddenly started misbehaving with the crew. He jumped on the forward cart (which is used for food and onboard merchandise) and sat on it. The crew immediately informed the Captain-in-command and the lead crew. The lead, politely requested the passenger to step down from the cart and he obliged. This passenger after stepping down from the cart, suddenly got violent and started physically abusing the other co-passenger.”
The flight again took off from the Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport at 10.30 am after the passenger was de-boarded.
