A man flying in Air India’s international flight allegedly urinated on the seat of a woman passenger onboard in a drunken state. The Civil Aviation Ministry seeks a report from the national carrier over the matter. The flight AI 102 was flying for New York from New Delhi on August 30 when the incident took place.

The woman passenger’s daughter Indrani Ghosh, tweeted about the incident on Friday evening and tagged the Civil Aviation minister Suresh Prabhu and the former Defence Minister Sushma Swaraj.

“@Suresh Prabhu, @Sushma Swaraj @Air India. 30th Aug AI102 JFK to Delhi, seat36D. My mother traveling alone had to face extreme shock and trauma when a drunk passenger post dinner service fumbled across to her seat, removed his pants and urinated on her seat! Please look into urgently,” she writes on Twitter.

She also accused Air India of simply changing her mother’s seat after the incident. In a response to a tweet from activist Kavita Krishnan, she writes, “My mother while waiting in her wheelchair at Delhi airport (for her connecting flight), saw him (the accused passenger) walk away.”

Junior aviation minister Jayant Sinha has directed Air India to follow up the matter immediately and report back to the ministry and aviation regulator, Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA).

“@airindiain please follow up immediately and report back to MoCA/DGCA. Very unfortunate that your mother had to go through this harrowing experience,” said Jayant Sinha said a tweet.
