Delhi: In a latest development in the Air India urination case, a co-passenger has shared his side of the story. Shankar Mishra allegedly urinated on his co-passenger on New York to Delhi flight in an inebriated state on November 26.
According to co-passenger, S Bhattacharjee, the incident happened after lunch was served.
“He (accused) had 4 drinks & then was asking me the same questions multiple times. I finished lunch, told the flight attendant to keep an eye on him. The lady (victim) was quite decent. Two junior Air hostesses cleaned her up. I went to the senior stewardess and asked them to give her another seat, she said that she can’t do that as they had to take permission from the Captain,” Bhattacharjee informed news agency ANI.
“Only option for her was to move to 1st class as business class was full, what they (flight crew) did was clean her seat & kept blankets on seat smelling of urine. They could’ve given Shankar Mishra’s seat but they didn’t do anything to pacify distressed passenger, ” Bhattacharje added.
