NEW DELHI/BENGALURU, JANUARY 7: The man who allegedly urinated on a woman co- passenger on an Air India flight was arrested Saturday while the carrier’s CEO issued an apology over handling of the incident and said four cabin crew and a pilot have been de-rostered and the policy of serving alcohol on flights is being reviewed.
Delhi Police arrested Shankar Mishra, 34, from Bengaluru after he was traced to that city through technical surveillance, officials said. A Delhi court later sent Mishra to judicial remand for 14 days while rejecting a plea by police for his custody.
Police had sought his three-day remand, saying he was required to be identified by three cabin crew members and two captains and other co-passengers were also to be examined. Passing the order, Metropolitan Magistrate Anamika noted that Mishra’s custody was not required by police for recording statements of other witnesses, including cabin crew and co-passengers.
